The preferred method for configuring your device is to use the eduroam CAT (Configuration Assistant Tool) - this tool will automatically set your device up to use the eduroam network. To do this, go to the Eduroam CAT page and follow the instructions according to your device, rather than using the guidance below.
Only perform a manual setup if you experience problems with the automatic setup!
If your Control Panel is in "Category View" select Network and Internet, else select Network and Sharing Center and skip to step 4.
