Configuring eduroam on a Nokia

These instructions are for configuring wireless access to eduroam. They are known to work on the following models:
N86, N95, N97, E61, E71.

These steps must be followed in an area where the eduroam wireless network is available. A list of institutions with University Wireless Service access points is available. Note that not all have eduroam access available at present.
