Eduroam Configuration for Windows 7
These instructions will configure your wireless connection to the eduroam wireless network. It will allow you to authenticate and browse using a higher level of security.
NOTE: These instructions will assume you have the latest Windows updates and are using Windows to manage your wireless connection and not a third party vendor’s program (Intel, Linksys, etc.).
Configure Wireless Connection
In the Details section make sure of the following items:
a. Radius Server: cprad.ns.int.ryerson.ca
b. Root CA: DigiCert High Assurance EV Root CA
If you are prompted to select a location to save your network connection, select Work network.
You will now be connected to the eduroam wireless network. Your credentials are now cached and you will automatically be authenticated when you are within the range of the wireless signal.
NOTE: For security reasons we recommend that you do NOT cache your credentials. This is especially important for laptops that will have multiple users.
Please follow the remaining steps to disable this feature.
Disable Cached Credentials
Disable your cached credentials from the taskbar at the bottom of your desktop, click on the wireless icon.
From the Currently connected to window, RIGHT click the eduroam network and click Properties.
Note: If the Properties option does not display initially, wait a few seconds for the connection status to say Connected and Properties will then be available.
