How to install a CA Certificate for WIFI? Kindle PW

I've been searching in the forum and i didn't find anything.

My university has a wify connection called eduroam. I have put the *.cer in the root of the kindle, but when I configure the connection, it sais that the Certificate cannot be found.

How should I install it?

Thanks!

Have a look at my search for "eduroam" in the developer corner see these threads where people discussed their solutions, including the *.cer Certificates.

Sorry for reviving a very old topic.

After I struggled with that problem myself, I wrote a short blog post about the correct settings:
https://tribut.de/blog/amazon-kindle-and-eduroam/

It boils down to putting the file in PEM format in a folder called "certs" and then specifying the file name without path in "CA Certificate". The file must have a .crt extension.

I was able to do it with your guide.
Imported a Verisign CA cert that is used in our corporate network on Win 7 in DER format.
Converted it from DER to CRT.
Placed the file into "certs" folder on Kindle through USB, and configured all options as needed.
USERNAME must have Domain name where you log into, you can get it in windows from "set" command in Command Prompt. Ej: userna@domain.....

Tx mate.
