Configuring eduroam on Ubuntu Desktop 17.10

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.


  1. Open the "Settings" (aka GNOME Control Center) app.
  2. Click on the "Wi-Fi" panel.
  3. Select eduroam from the list of visible networks.
  4. In the following window, enter the following settings:
    • Wi-Fi security: WPA & WPA2 Enterprise
    • Authentication: Protected EAP (PEAP)
    • No CA certificate is required: checked
    • PEAP version: Automatic
    • Inner Authentication: MSCAPv2
    • 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. gpburdell33@gatech.edu).
    • Password: Your password will be your instiutuion password. For local GT users, use your GT Account password.
  5. Click "Connect".
  6. You should now be connected to the eduroam network.
