Eduroam is a network that allows members of universities or research institutes to use wifi in other universities or research institutes without having to register for a guest account. This utilizes WPA2 Enterprise authentification.

Connecting to WPA2 Enterprise networks was not supported on older Kindles (e.g. hacks needed to be used for Kindle 3 devices). With recent Kindles it seems to be possible at least for Kindle Touch and Kindle Paperwhite.

Is is also possible out of the box for "basic" Kindles with physical buttons (K4NT)? If not: Are hacks needed and available?

  • Just for the record, the Kindle 2 is WhisperNet only — no wifi. I mention this because of course the K2 is one of the Kindles with a keyboard that precedes the Kindle Touch.

    I am not a fan of reposts and I respect the authors intellectual property. I will reconstruct the proposed algorithm here to avoid a possible dead link. However, down voting creates the false impression that the suggested solution is simply wrong or inaccurate.

    That is all I meant. Linking to the original author's post is ideal, so long as you provide protection against a future dead link (otherwise this post loses all of its value). As for the downvoting, I agree with you. I was just informing you of why you were likely downvoted, but it was not me that actually gave you the downvote. I would prefer that people only downvote incorrect answers or at least provide a reason why they gave a downvote. Unfortunately that is not enforced in the Stack Exchange community.
