I am currently trying to install Debian on a laptop and due to firmware incompatibility, I am using the non-free netinstaller which can be found here. I cp'd it onto a USB (not a partition) and booted which solved the required firmware issue, However, to complete the install I need to connect to the internet. Unfortunately, the Debian installer has no option to connect to a network that uses EAP-PEAP MSCHAPv2 (username/password), common to universities, which is stopping me from completing the install.
From research that I have done so far, I believe that I need to set up the wpa_supplicant manually from command line (ctrl+alt+f2 from the GUI installer). I have tried using a template from the manpages for my settings, but could not get it to work. This is my first experience with wpa_supplicant and I do not have direct access to ethernet, so if anybody could tell me how to connect to the network, it would be much appreciated. If any more information would help to solve the issue, I am willing to provide.
I have been following the Debian Jessie installation guide for amd64 through the install.
