Eduroam Tutorial Win7


1. Within the reach of a BOKU access point, with the left mouse button click on the symbol "Drahtlosnetzwerk" (mostly in the task bar in the right lower corner next to the clock)

2. A window opens. With the left mouse button click on "Netzwerk- und Freigabecenter öffnen" 

3. Move on to "Drahtlosnetzwerke verwalten" 

4. With the left mouse button click on "Hinzufügen" to add a new wireless network

5. With the left mouse button click on "Ein Netzwerkprofil manuell erstellen" 

6. Type in the "network name" -> "eduroam" (also known as "SSID") and the "security type" -> "WPA2-Enterprise" add a network by clicking on the button "Weiter"

7. Here we wish to change some settings "Verbindungseinstellungen ändern"

8. In the tab "Sicherheit" navigate to "Einstellungen" 

9. Check the settings according to the picture. For "Vertrauenswürdige Stammzertifizierungsstellen" tick "AddTrust External CA Root" and ...

10. Under "Konfigurieren..." tick off "Automatisch eigenen Windows-Anmeldenamen und Kennwort (und Domäne, falls vorhanden) verwenden". Then close the window by pressing "OK" twice. "AddTrust External CA Root" is BOKU's certification authority and thus can be trusted. 

11. Again in the tab "Sicherheit" navigate to "Erweiterte Einstellungen" 

12. In the tab "802.1X-Einstellungen" tick "Authentifizierungsmodus angeben". In the drop down menu select "Benutzerauthentifizierung"

14. Type in the Boku log in data and confirm by pressing "OK" three times and close the window with "schließen".

15. FINISHED - Shortly after this Windows should automatically connect with the Eduroam network and provide you with internet access! :-)
