Eduroam on Maemo (on the N900)

Posted on

The University of Waterloo has joined the eduroam international educational institution WiFi access exchange program. I am very happy about this, since eduroam uses good WPA2+RADIUS authentication instead of stupid captive portal stuff. Since I had to do some research to figure out how to connect from my N900, I thought I would share that here.

  1. Go to Settings > Internet connections > Connections > New
  2. Select WPA with EAP for security.
  3. EAP type: PEAP
  4. Certificate: none
  5. EAP method: EAP MSCHAPv2
  6. User name:
  7. Password: Your Quest password
  8. Hit “Advanced”
  9. Go to the EAP tab
  10. Check the box “Use manual user name” and enter again

The last three steps are the extra part. I go this information from this thread. I have no idea what the difference is between a “manual user name” and the username that is part of the login prompt. Maybe someone else knows?
