My ex-collegue just passed on a Mac mini Server to me and said it needed an OS. So I start it with Command-R, and then it asks me for Wi-Fi connection.
I am on my University network, so I can connect with my staff account or eduroam. However, none of those are in the list of detected networks. They have fine range though and all my other Mac/Unix machines in my office have no problem.
So I tried adding a new network: I type eid and I have a box for password, however, not for username. All the networks here require both username and password.
Is there any way around this?
I can connect to my iPhone as a hotspot, but I can't possibly share as much data as needed for the setup as my bill would be too high.
So I figure, I'd share my MacBook connection through USB with my iPhone, but it says: Your Internet connection cannot be shared because it is protected by 802.1X.
Maybe this reveals some info about the Wi-Fi connection here and why the setup is not detecting it.
