Yes, it went into Authorities.

Should only WLAN be checked, not Mail and Browser also?

I think this is the problem. My understanding -- possibly faulty -- is 
that cert checking is optional, so connection software shouldn't do it 
unless specifically asked. As I said, no other computer on campus has 
ever asked for or checked the cert: not Mac, not Windows, not Linux, 
except the N800. My guess is that this is just a bug -- an oversight in 
the procedures. There should be a checkbox for this option alongside the 
other one.

Yes, actually connecting works OK that way. Thanks for the help.
