I have always had difficulties remembering how to configure the Eduroam Wi-Fi network on a windows device (Android or Windows Phone is very easy.) Below is a guide detailing how using picture. Note this is essentially the same content as the guide provided by Uppsala University.

Note: This guide presumes you are using Windows 10, if you are using Windows 7 or Windows 8 the steps are similar, apart from getting to Network and Sharing Centre (Steps 1 - 3). The very last step (step 19) might also differ.

  1. Open settings (Win+I)

  2. Press Network & Internet

  3. Under the Status tab, scroll down and press Network and Sharing Centre

  4. Press Set up a new connection or network

  5. Choose Manually connect to a wireless network and press Next

  6. Enter/Select the following:

    Network name:  eduroam
    Security type:  WPA2-Enterprise
    Start this connection automatically:  Yes
    Connect even if the network is not broadcasting:  No
  7. Press Next

  8. Press Change connection settings

  9. Change to the Security tab

  10. Under Choose a network authentication method select Microsoft: Protected EAP (PEAP) and press Settings

  11. Select Verify the server’s identity by validating the certificate

  12. Enter/Select the following:

    Connect to these servers:  Yes
    Server name (for Uppsala University):
    Trusted Root Certification Authorities:  DigiCert Assured ID Root CA
    Select Authentication Method: Secured Password (EAP-MSCHAP v2)
    Enable Fast Reconnect:  No

    Press Configure…

  13. De-select Automatically use my windows log-on name and password (and domain if any). and press OK)

  14. Press OK

  15. Press Advanced settings

  16. Select Specify authentication mode

  17. Select User authentication and press Save credentials

  18. A popup will show requiring entrance of credentials, enter following:

    Username: Your UU username (aabb1122) followed by
    Password: Your UU password B (Lösenord B)
  19. Press OK

  20. Press OK

  21. Press OK

  22. Press Close

  23. For me the device automatically connected to the network at this point. If your device does not do this, press the network icon in the task tray (usually bottom right). Select eduroam and Connect automatically. Lastly press Connect

  24. Congratulations, you should now be connected to the eduroam network
