Configuring wireless client devices for eduroam

Notes on mobile device configuration

The recommended means of configuring your mobile device is via eduroam CAT. Please check there first for a suitable installer for your device before using any of the instructions below to configure your device manually.

Should you wish to proceed with manual configuration, then check first whether your device is compatible with eduroam via the eduroam Compatibility Matrix.

The table below provides links to instructions on configuring various wireless clients on a variety of operating systems/devices for those users whose home site is participating in eduroam as an IdP (Identity Provider).

The implementation details of the IdP service of your home site will determine the configuration that you should use on your mobile device. One important factor is the authentication method(s) supported by your home site. The documentation here focuses on the two most common authentication methods: PEAP+MSCHAPv2, and TTLS+PAP. Not all wireless clients support both methods.
