How to set up eduroam on a mobile device running Chrome OS

Before you begin, make sure you're in a location where the eduroam wireless network is available, have your @cam email address handy and have collected your network access token from the UIS token page.

 

1

Connect to the internet – for example, by selecting the UniOfCam Wi-Fi network and logging in with your UIS Password.

2

Visit eduroam's Configuration Assistant Tool: https://cat.eduroam.org/.

3

Select "Click here to download your eduroam installer".

Your device type will be detected and the Chrome OS installer download link should appear, click on the link.

If you're using a different device to download the installer (for example, a laptop) then you'll need to select "Choose another installer to download" and choose Chrome OS from the list.

You won't see any confirmation that the import has been successful, but the settings should have been updated. You should now be able to connect to eduroam by tapping on 'Settings', then 'Wi-Fi', then choose eduroam, and enter your [CRSid]@cam.ac.uk email address and your token.
