Adminstering wireless networks

Go to: Start → Systemsteuerung → Netzwerk und Internet: Netzwerkstatus und -aufgaben anzeigen:

Add new network

Now below "Netzwerksteinstellung ändern" please click on:
"Neue Verbindung oder neues Netzwerk einrichten":

After that, please choose "Manuell mit einem Drahtlosnetzwerk verbinden". Next, click on Weiter:

Connect to eduroam

Now, close all windows of the network configuration using OK, then please click on "Verbindung mit einem Netzwerk herstellen":

Next, connect to eduroam: within the list of networks, choose the entry "eduroam" by clicking on the button Verbinden:

Enter user name and password

After the connection has been established, a popup will appear at the bottom right of your screen. Click on it:

Enter your user name as follows:

username@uni-mainz.de (users of other institutions which are participating in edoroam may use the login name of their institutions, for example mustermann@uni-frankfurt.de)

Please make sure to enter your real user name before the @ symbol, not a mail alias which might differ from your user name!

Logon domain (Anmeldedomäne) (in case this is aked for): none.

Password: your password for the account entered above.

Confirm the data you entered using OK.

In case this doesn't work ...

... and you receive the note 'Verbindung zum Netzwerk kann nicht hergestellt werden': this probably means that the necessary certicate is not installed on your device. To solve this problem, you may use another network (winulum, for example) and then open a https URL like OWA (→ https://mail.uni-mainz.de) or JoguStINe (→ https://jogustine.uni-mainz.de) with Internet-Explorer (not Chrome, Opera, Firefox or another browser, because it won't work there).
If you open that URL in Internet Explorer, the necessary certificate should be automatically installed and will then be availabe for wireless connections like eduroam and uni-mainz.
