How do I connect to Eduroam: Linux

Student Resident "Erik" did the awesome work of tracking down Eduroam instructions for students running Linux. Thanks Erik!  Erik writes:

 

Here are the settings that worked for me, as based on the MIT webpage http://kb.mit.edu/confluence/pages/viewpage.action?pageId=152599592 :

* Wireless security: WPA & WPA2 Enterprise 
* Authentication: Protected EAP (PEAP) 
* Anonymous identity: (leave blank) 
* PEAP version: Automatic 
* Inner Authentication: MSCHAPv2 
* Username: [SUNet_ID]@win.stanford.edu 
* Password: [SUNet password]

1. Find Network Manager, edit settings in "security" tab as above 
2. Click on CA certificate. Navigate to /usr/share/ca-certificates/mozilla and select the file "AddTrust_External_Root.crt". Click Open. Alternatively, if this file is missing from your Firefox installation, you can always download AddTrust's public key file from their website (https://support.comodo.com/index.php?/Default/Knowledgebase/Article/View/917/91/) .

3. Returning to the Authentication required window, click Connect. If all goes well, you should be connected to the network.

NB: I'm not sure if step 2 with the CA certificate is actually required, since I initially checked the checkbox "No CA certificate is required" and it seemed to work. I then went back and added the certificate and it still worked.

 

Did this work for you (or even if it didn't)?  Let us know in the comments below!
