Each version of Android and each manufacturer of Android devices changes components of the Android user interface. They do this to make the experience match the goals of the specific device.
Because of this, we are not able to show specific screenshots for the different versions. However, we are able to provide an overview of the steps necessary to configure Android for UCSFwpa. Please configure your UCSFwpa connection directly from the Android Settings, as outlined below.
Note: Many third-party Wi-Fi manager apps and homescreen widgets do not support the enterprise-level authentication method required to connect to UCSFwpa.
