Cannot save security settings on new Wi-Fi connection

Question

Hi, I'm running Bodhi 4.2 on an Acer c720 Chromebook (very happily, btw), and I'm trying to set up a new network connection.

 

I was able to add a new WiFi connection, but when I'm editing the security settings, the "Save" button is greyed out.

 

The settings I need (and put in) are

 

 

Security: WPA & WPA2 Enterprise
∘ Authentication: Protected EAP (PEAP)
∘ CA certificate: No CA certificate is required
∘ PEAP versions: Automatic
∘ Inner authentications: MSCHAPv2
∘ Username: kgogolin
∘ Password: •••••••••

 

(I'd post a screenshot, but don't understand how to.)

 

I can enter the settings into the nm-applet connection editor, but I can't save them.  I tried running the nm-applet in gksudo as well.

 

Any ideas?

I figured it out.  What a silly mistake on my part!

 

There was a checkbox to the left of the statement "No CA certificate is required" that wasn't rendered as a box -- and so I didn't see it, and didn't check it.  Once I checked it, the save button was no longer grayed out.

 

Thanks for all the input!

Just for giggles, add 8.8.8.8 to the dns in the ipv4 tab and see if that helps. I have seen the issue before, but, don't recall if/how I fixed it.

 

BTW 8.8.8.8 is one of Goggle's domain name servers. There are many other options from different sources, if Goggle is "EVIL" to you. :)

I had noticed that the SAVE is grayed out when there is invalid or insufficient information in the window e.g. there was no password entered when the security that was specified insists or requires one. In that case, entering a password will then let me save it, but entering one that is too short leaves it grayed out. I think it was in nm-applet or network connection setup, but without the screenshot I can't say for sure
