Does Pmod ESP32 support WPA2 Enterprise



Hi. We are trying to hook up a Digilent Pmod ESP32 ESP-WROOM-32 WiFi Module to our customers network, a hospital with WPA2 Enterprise Wifi access. The AP is hidden, we have an SSID, a user and a password.

We tried the AT+CWJEAP command, but always get a (CRC) error. Even simply questioning the command results in the same error. While connecting to a 'normal' AP works immediately, and questioning the AT+CWJAP? works just fine.


Can you confirm if the Pmod supports WPA2 Enterprise, what are we missing here? Thanks - Bart

Hi @BMS,

I am not aware of any reason why the ESP32 would not be able to connect to an Enterprise network. The command you are attempting should be correct; I am not at the local office this week to be able to test connecting to the Enterprise network that is there (I usually only attempted to connect to a local hotspot provided by my mobile device), though the error code is confusing since it does not match the format listed in the Espressif document here: https://docs.espressif.com/projects/esp-at/en/latest/esp32/AT_Command_Set/Wi-Fi_AT_Commands.html#id93.

One thing I would end up checking is that if the network you are connecting to advertises on a 2.4 GHz band since I believe the ESP32 device only operates on 2.4 GHz and not 5 GHz.

Otherwise I presume you are providing the correct parameters such as the method and identity as outlined in the same document (https://docs.espressif.com/projects/esp-at/en/latest/esp32/AT_Command_Set/Wi-Fi_AT_Commands.html#id92).

Hi JColvin - thanks for your reply. 

The Wifi network is on 2.4GHZ, with a hidden SSID.

We are following the instruction for AT+CWJEAP=<ssid>,<method>,<identity>,<username>,<password>,<security>[,<jeap_timeout>]

and sending the following command (PASSWORD replaces the actual strong pwd): 


We immediately get this strange/undocumented error 0x0109000 which is not found under Wi-Fi AT Commands - ESP32 - — ESP-AT User Guide latest documentation (espressif.com)

Could you perhaps test on your local office enterprise WPA2? I only have it available at the customer.. 


Many thanks. Bart
