I am using Debian Stretch/Testing with Xfce. I have an eight year old Acer laptop. I am currently using
network-manager-gnome to connect to WiFi from the laptop at the university where I teach.
Most of the time I have no issue. However, something strange has been happening. On Mondays, only on Mondays (every Monday for the past three weeks). My connection will work for about two to three minutes, and then it will slow to a halt. It actually did the same thing today when connected to a WiFi hotspot I created on my phone. My phone works fine on the university WiFi at these same times.
Today, while using
network-manager-gnome, my WiFi hotspot connection died. So I disabled Network Manager and I connected to the hotspot via manual configuration. This WiFi connection worked perfectly fine.
For manual configuration I have the
/etc/network/interfaces file that sources to the
interfaces.d directory. I have created
/etc/network/interfaces.d/wlan0. It has content like this:
auto wlan_home iface wlan_home inet dhcp wpa-ssid home-network-ssid wpa-psk secret-key auto wlan_hotspot iface wlan_hotspot inet dhcp wpa-ssid wifi-hotspot-ssid wpa-psk secret-key
To connect I use the command (example of home network):
sudo ifup wlan0=wlan_home
(I of course have the proper r/w permissions (chmod 600) set to the
wlan0 file as well as a generated key instead of my actual password.)
Now to my question. I would like to add the proper configuration information to the
wlan0 file to be able to connect to my university network. I would like to be able to connect using this manual configuration for when Network Manager fizzles out. Here is the general information used to connect in
nm-connection-editor. I have been unable to find any guide on the proper connection information to place in my file. Otherwise, perhaps the only option is to set up the connection with the
