What to do if I can't connect to eduroam?

  1. If you have any network connection already, we recommend that you visit this site to use the eduroam Configuration Assistant Tool. It guides you through the best steps for getting connected. 
  2. When prompted for username and password, be sure to enter your official UAH email address (ChargerID@uah.edu) and Charger password to connect to eduroam.
  3. Make sure that your encryption method is set to PEAP, rather than LEAP. These options are available in a drop-down menu when you are entering your username and password.
  4. If you are asked whether or not to accept a certificate to connect, you should verify the new certificate comes from eduroam.uah.edu and is issued by AddTrust. Then, approve the certificate; your device should connect to eduroam normally. If accessing via login from another institute, please contact your institution's help desk for information regarding the certificate.

If any of these steps are not helpful, then try forgetting the network eduroam from your device's network menu, and start from the beginning.

Here is how to forget/remove/delete the eduroam network from the list of those you have previously used:

  • In Windows 10, click the Network icon in the lower right corner of your screen. Click the Network settings option and then Manage Wi-Fi settings. Choose the eduroam network from Manage known networks, and then click Forget.
  • In Windows 8, access Settings and choose the Networks pane. Choose the eduroam network and right-click to see the Forget this network option. Click that option.

To forget a wireless network on macOS:

Why do I keep seeing prompts to trust security certificates?

The Office of Information Technology replaced an InCommon security certificate within the eduroam service on 8/11/16. Anyone who had already indicated that they trust the security certificate before that date will be prompted again due to the change (but not again until the certificate changes).
