When you do not use a keychain with the iCloud, then you should generate for every device eduroam credentials. If you use a keychain für your several devices, then you can only create on credential and use it for all your devices. You will find a tutorial here: https://doc.itc.rwth-aachen.de/x/RQTuAQ. You'll need them to authenticate in step 3.

Please note that login names generated with the help of eduroam Devicemanager will end with @rwth.edufi.de for members of the RWTH Aachen University and with @fzj.edufi.de for the members of the FZ Jülich.

You can still access the institute WLAN using a login name that ends with @rwth-aachen.de.

Step 1: Connect with RWTH-guests

Availability of RWTH-guests


Please also note that the network RWTH-guests is not available in the area of the Uniklinikum RWTH Aachen.

For the automated configuration of the eduroam WLAN you need the configuration file of the German Research Network.

To download the configuration file, you need an internet connection. Within the university you can use the public WLAN "RWTH-guests". After establishing the connection to this network, another window opens in which you have to click on "ACTIVATE ACCESS".
Now you are connected to the RWTH-guests WLAN.

Step 3: Installing profile

Double-click on the downloaded file and confirm the following dialog by clicking on ”Continue”.

Step 4: Enter user data
