eduroam Network Configuration for Android SmartPhone

 

The below guide has been tested on Android 2.3 (Gingerbread). Screenshots are taken from Gingerbread thus may slighlty differ depending on firmware version and make and customisation of your device.

 

 

Pre-requisites  

  • Firmware 1.6 (Donut) or above must be installed;
  • WiFi must be enabled (depending on the make, either via hardware or software switch);
  • WiFi network settings must be set to DHCP

 

Procedure  

  1. Go to an area covered by the Institute's WiFi;
  2. From the home menu/desktop, tap on Applications, Settings, Wireless & networks, Wi-Fi settings;
  3. The device will now scan for available wireless networks: wait for the list to be populated;
  4. Tap eduroam from the list of available networks;
  5. All connection details will be filled in automatically [1]: leave all settings as per default;
  6. Type in your EUI credentials as follows:

    Identity = [email protected] (for example [email protected])
    Password = your_EUI_password

  7. IMPORTANT: leave the Anonymous identity filed (if available) blank!
  8. Tap Connect.

You now have successfully configured your device to connect to eduroam.

Your device will automatically connect to eduroam whenever it is in range and your wireless card is enabled and turned on.

Please Note: to save power, Android will connect to any wireless service only when it is required. If you find at times you don't have a connection, it may be because Android has decided it has no use for it at the time.

 

 

 

 

 

[1] = If automatic configuration fails, fill in connection details manually.
