eduroam on Windows 10

We recommend the tool of DFN (DFN CAT) to set up eduroam under Windows 10 . If you want to do the setup manually, please follow this guide.

 

Please note that you must complete all steps so that you can use the eduroam network with the manual configuration even after 09.07.2019 .

 

Remember to generate access data for each device. Instructions can be found here . These are required for authentication in step 2.

Please note that when creating access data via the eduroam device manager, the login names generated for RWTH members end with @ rwth.edufi.de , and the login names generated for FZ Jülich members with @ fzj.edufi.de .

The access to the institute WLAN continues to work via the login names ending in @ rwth-aachen.de .

 


  Anleitung

Step 1: Install the certificate

Make sure that the T-TeleSec GlobalRoot Class 2 is installed.

If this is not the case, connect to the RWTH-guests network, start the browser and download this certificate for Windows.

 

Step 2: Enter user data

Now you can disconnect from RWTH guests and connect to eduroam.

To do this, enter your generated user data and then click on "OK". (If you have not yet created user data for the device, you can do so as described here .)

 

In case of connection problems the access data are used again in step 9.

Enter user data

 

If you can not enter the credentials directly in the window because a pop-up about "Windows Security" appears, please delete the Wi-Fi profile and reconnect.

Step 3: Confirm Root Certification Authority

If you try to connect for the first time, you may need to confirm the connection again.

By clicking on "Connect" you can complete the initial setup. Only now can the connection be configured correctly. Click on "Network and Internet Settings".

Step 6: Select authentication method

Please check the box under "Trusted Root Certification Authorities" at "T-TeleSec GlobalRoot Class 2".

If you selected "Enable identity protection", make sure that the domain part of this information matches your username (here: " @ rwth.edufi.de ").

Under "Connect to the following servers", specify the following Radius servers. (Copy & paste possible)

radius.rz.rwth-aachen.de; radius1.rz.rwth-aachen.de; radius2.rz.rwth-aachen.de; radius3.rz.rwth-aachen.de

For EAP authentication method, please select "Secure password (EAP-MSCHAP v2)". Then click on 'Configure'.

Select authentication method

 

Step 7: Disable automatic user data dialing

Take out any hooks that may have been set and then click on 'OK' twice, so that you can return to the security settings from point 5. Now select the item 'Advanced Settings'.

Step 8: Configure advanced settings

Put the check mark here under "Specify Authentication Mode". Then select "User Authentication" from the drop-down menu. Then click on 'Save credentials' and re-enter your credentials.
