How to connect roku to wifi with username and password?

I'm trying to connect my Roku 2XD at work but our wireless network requires a username and password, however on the Roku it only gives you the option to enter a password. Actually I am trying to connect Macbook with Roku via Airport WiFi, so username and password is need but I don’t know how to accomplish this task. The panel that comes up with WiFi connection ask for a WPA2 password and I don’t know where to find this. Is there a way to connect Roku 2XD to home wireless network.
