The following are the basic configuration settings needed to connect to eduroam. Use these if you are configuring wireless on a device or operating system that is not supported by UMass Amherst IT. Supported devices get additional connectivity improvements by running the JoinNow setup wizard.
- Network Name (SSID): eduroam
- Username/Identity: NetID@umass.edu
- Password: IT Account Password
- Authentication Mode: WPA2 Enterprise
- Encryption Type: AES
- Authentication Method: PAP
- EAP Type: EAP-TTLS
Note: If your wireless network management program asks you to enter a Roaming Identity or Outer Identity, leave that field blank (this label may differ according to the software). Entering any information in this field will prevent you from successfully connecting to eduroam.
UPDATE: Starting in June 2018, a new setup wizard replaced XpressConnect, making it even easier to connect to the eduroam wireless network. For more information, head to the Wireless Network Access page.
