This guide will explain how to configure Ubuntu 17.10 to use the eduroam network. This example uses Ubuntu Desktop's NetworkManager package which is installed by default.
Important Note: If you have previously conencted your device to the GTwifi, GTother, or GTvisitor networks, you should delete/forget these wireless configurations prior to joining the eduroam network. Only one GT network should be configured on any device at a given time.
- Open the "Settings" (aka GNOME Control Center) app.
- Click on the "Wi-Fi" panel.
- Select eduroam from the list of visible networks.
- In the following window, enter the following settings:
- Wi-Fi security: WPA & WPA2 Enterprise
- Authentication: Protected EAP (PEAP)
- Anonymous Identity: <leave blank>
- Domain: lawn.gatech.edu
- CA Certificate:
- Click "Select from file..." in the dropdown menu
- Within the file browser, navigate to /etc/ssl/certs/ Hint: You can press Ctrl-L to type the path, instead of navigating graphically.
- Select the AddTrust_External_Root.pem certificate, and click "Open"
- No CA certificate is required: leave unchecked
- PEAP version: Automatic
- Inner Authentication: MSCHAPv2
- Username: Your username will be in the form of <institution username>@<institution domain>. For local GT users your institution username will be your GT Account username and your institution domain will be gatech.edu (e.g. firstname.lastname@example.org).
