Configure Android for secure wireless access

The following instructions will enable you to connect your Android device to eduroam, the secure wireless network.

  6. For "Phase 2 authentication" select "MSCHAPV2".
  7. If you are using the Nougat (7) OS on your Android,  set "CA Certificate" to "Use system certificates" and "Domain" to "ed.ac.uk".
  8. Enter your Identity as your username plus @ed.ac.uk, e.g. "s10987654@ed.ac.uk".
  9. Some devices may have an "Anonymous identity" field. Leave this blank.
  10. Enter your wi-fi password.
  11. Touch "Connect".
  12. Your device should show "Obtaining IP address from eduroam..." then shortly after "Connected to eduroam".
  13. IMPORTANT: Press "Cancel" to go back to the previous screen. Do NOT press "Forget" or you will need to enter all the configuration information again.

Your device should now connect automatically to the eduroam wireless network whenever it is in range.
