Which devices cannot connect to MIT SECURE?

Answer

The list of devices that are supported on the MIT SECURE wireless network is continually growing. A device must support WPA2 Enterprise with PEAP/MSCHAPv2 in order to be able to connect to MIT SECURE. You can find a list below of some popular devices that are known to NOT work on the MIT SECURE wireless network.

To find out if your devices is supported by MIT Secure, you can lookup it's wifi certificate on the WiFi Alliance (http://wi-fi.org) product page:

Once you've found the device you're looking for, click on its certificate to find out whether or not WPA2 Enterprise security is supported.

Due to the turning off of low data rates (1 mbps, 2mbps, 5mbps), devices that require these rates will not be able to connect. This includes devices like the Nintendo Wii, Nintendo DS, and Nintendo 3DS.

    Empirically, at least the latest Kindle (7th generation, Wi-Fi) works with MIT SECURE. I suspect this was enabled a few generations ago by firmware 5.1.0 (“Wi-Fi Enhancements: Connect your Kindle Touch to Wi-Fi with WPS and select WPA2 Enterprise networks”).
