    Default Any way to use the iPhone on a WiFi network that requires me to..

    1. Enter both username and password
    2. Download a specific digital certificate before connecting

    Can the iPhone do this? All the WiFi networks on colleges and universities here in Norway use the same login and password with a specific digital certificate.

    Option 1 is fine - basically it's an open WiFi connection that then forces you to go straight to a fixed site, where you have to give a username and password to go further. iPhone copes with that fine.

    Option 2 - almost certainly not. If the digital certificate is a special cookie or something, then maybe, but from what you describe I think it would not work. How do they cope with other browsers/computers/OS's accessing the network? I'm suspicious about this "specific digital certificate" - if so, no mobile device in the world that I know about would be able to connect.

    I suggest seeing if anyone you know can connect to the WiFi with any other mobile device - Windows Mobile, a WiFi blackberry, Palm etc. If any of them can connect, you're almost certainly safe with the iPhone. If none of them can, then the iPhone won't either.

    It's not a website. You enter the username and password when you're logging onto the network, like when you enter a WAP key.

    I think Devicescape might be able to help me out, sent them an email yesterday.

    That would an authentication using the 802.1X protocol, which is not supported by the iPhone (yet?) :-(
