Network settings, eduroam and roam.fi

The network settings of eduroam and roam.fi are identical except for the network name.

There are two ways to setup these networks in your devices. If you are using Android or Apple IOS device, you can use Geteduroam application that can be downloaded from the appstores. Login to the app with your organisational credentials and the app will configure both networks for your device. If you have previously tried to manually connect to either network, you must remove them from your device before using Geteduroam. Geteduroam might not work perfectly with all the different versions of Android/IOS. Especially some older version of these operating systems might give you some errors when using the application. Alternatively you can set up the network manually for your device, check the specifications below.
