In concept, eduroam is pretty cool since it lets you connect to wifi at tons of other schools across the US without any extra work for you. But it's generally a pain on seemingly everything. Here are some the settings you need to set in different Linux distros.

Ubuntu (16.04 & 17.10)

  • Wi-Fi security: "WPA & WPA2 Enterprise"
  • Authentication: "Protected EAP (PEAP)"
  • Anonymous identity: blank
  • Domain: blank or "rose-hulman.edu"
  • Check "No CA certificate is required"
  • PEAP version: "Automatic"
  • Inner authentication: "MSCHAPv2"
  • Username: yourRoseUsername@rose-hulman.edu
  • Password: yourRosePassword

Note that you may have to try doing this multiple times to actually get it to connect.
