To connect to the Eduroam network Microsoft Windows 7 needs to be upgraded with an updated SecureW2 client (eduroam_client) that provides support for the EAP-TTLS security standard.
Before you install the client for the wireless Eduroam network, update your computer’s wireless network card drivers. After installation do not change the client’s settings. Doing so may compromise your computer’s security level.
We do not recommend setting up a client that is not adapted to the Eduroam network manually.
The data used in the example below is fictional so replace it with your own during the installation process.
First you need to transfer the eduroam_client on to your computer. It can be found on the Arnes’ ftp server . You can do this by using a web browser (in our example we used Mozilla Firefox).
The window below opens:
In the instructions the name of the file ends with the date 20091126 . In our case the date will probably be more recent. Click the button.
