eduroam is a registered trademark of TERENA. RWTH Aachen University is independent of TERENA.
"eduroam" provides worldwide WiFi. Information about participating institutes can be found at www.eduroam.org.
Using eduroam, RWTH members can connect to the WiFi at these locations as usual. Equally, the eduroam connections at the RWTH are usable by members of other participating institutes. The login is done using the ID of the user's home institution.
By connecting the 802.1X authenticated WiFi of the RWTH to DFNRoaming (Roaming of the German Research Network) in early 2007, the RWTH WiFi became a participator of eduroam.
Using eduroam at the RWTH
RWTH members use the SSID "eduroam" according to the installation manuals.
Guests who can use eduroam at their home institutions can use their login data at the eduroam network of the RWTH.
Additionally to the eduroam WiFi it is possible to use eduroam via network socket at some locations.
All members get IP addresses of the range of the RWTH: 126.96.36.199/18 (188.8.131.52 - 184.108.40.206), and 220.127.116.11/19 (18.104.22.168 - 22.214.171.124)

Using eduroam at external locations
As user data you use the same data that you use at the RWTH. The authentication is encrypted, so as to prevent tapping of your user data in the host network.
In the event of faults or connection problems, the admins of the external institution may primarily assist you.
