Eduroam Wireless Change

Beginning at noon today (Tuesday August 3rd) campus Eduroam wireless will be reconfigured to provide a quicker and easier setup. For most devices you will be able to connect directly to Eduroam for setup and when prompted, log in with your email address (not just your username) and password. Client installation will no longer be necessary.

Existing campus Eduroam wireless configurations will stop working once this change is implemented. Wireless devices will need to use the new, simpler setup to get reconnected to campus wireless. The Eduroam Wireless documentation has been updated with instructions for the new setup.

Wireless Network Update

To ensure a secure campus wireless environment, devices that were configured more than a year ago need to be updated with the current network protocol.

We sent direct emails to those that we identified as using the older wireless protocol. If you are unsure if your device is configured correctly, you may re-run the Eduroam setup from your wireless device now by going to https://www.csuchico.edu/eduroam. Click on the “Join Now” button and follow the prompts.

Your wireless access may be interrupted on July 24th if your wireless configuration is not current.
