Logging your Android device into eduroam allows you to access our fast, encrypted wireless network for students. Follow these instructions to connect:
1. Turn on wifi by swiping down from the top of the screen and clicking on the wifi button so it lights up.
2. Select eduroam from the list of available wireless networks. A window like the one to the right will appear and you need to press ‘connect’.
3. Check the EAP method is PEAP and adjust if not.
4. Change the Phase 2 authentication drop down to 'MSCHAPV2'.
5. CA Certificate - set to "Do not validate"
6. In the identity box type in the username (eg) c1234567 followed by @leedsbeckett.ac.uk: email@example.com.
7. In the 'Anonymous identity' leave blank.
If you have a ChromeBook click
8. Enter a password (this is the same one that students use to log into MyBeckett).
9. Press 'Connect' and it should connect to eduroam.
If the phone doesn’t connect after this process, it is a good idea to ‘forget’ any Leeds Beckett networks and then try again. To do this:
i) Swipe down the screen and click on settings (generally represented by a cog).
ii) Click on wifi.
iii) Click on eduroam.
iv) In the small window that appears, click on ‘forget’. Also do this with eduroam-setup and visitor wifi.
v) If it still wont connect, restart the device and see if it then auto connects.
Once your device has connected to eduroam you should only need to reconnect every 6 months when your university password expires.
