I recently bought an Antminer S1, and while its coming in the mail, I'd like to figure out how to hook it up.
My college offers ethernet, but it requires special authentication (even an xbox or PS4 can't be plugged in directly). As a wifi network, the network is WPA2 Enterprise (so there's log in credentials). Can the antminer s1 connect to WPA2 Enterprise? I'm up for any ideas for getting my miner online, and that includes wifi.

Are you able to use a wifi router to do it?  Some have like extender mode where they will connect to a network and use it. 

If so I would try using router to connect to college network and plugging in to router to get internet for the S1.

I'm not sure if the S1 can connect to WPA2 wifi, but if it cannot directly another option would be a wifi to ethernet connector, and just plug the S1 into ethernet via that. Not sure how available something like that is though, or how much it would cost.

You might find that the college's firewall stops the miner.

This account was hacked & possibly sold during the period of August 1st and October 24th 2017.
Anything done or said in this period wasnt me.
Many thanks to Cyrus for his help restoring access to my account.
