How do I set up my computer to use the University wireless network (Windows)?

  • You can set up your computer to use the University wireless network eduroam quickly and easily by using the eduroam Configuration Assistant Tool

  • Staff devices that are NOT centrally managed will have internet access only when connecting to eduroam and will need to connect to the GlobalProtect VPN service for full access to AU resources.

  • Enter the network name eduroam then select WPA2-Enterprise and click Next
  • Click Change connection settings
  • Select WPA2-Enterprise with AES
  • Select Microsoft: Protected EAP (PEAP) then click Settings
  • Un-tick the box Verify the server's identity by validating the certificate then click Configure
