Normally, Linux system should be easily connect to any wifi, but Eduroam network has made it a little bit difficult. Due to my project which needs wifi to get good reaction with Google Assistant API, I try to connect to Royal College of Art’s Eduroam network.

I have tried to just install Eduroam installer for Linux in https://cat.eduroam.org/, but actually it always prompted me that the process is failed. So I tried another method which you just need to add some codes in the wpa_supplicant file. The file should be in /etc/wpa_supplicant/wpa_supplicant.conf

What you need to do is

  1. Copy a new wpa_supplicant/wpa_supplicant.conf in the Desktop;
  2. Open the file with Text Editor;
  3. Add the following codes and save;
  4. Open Terminal and use “sudo mv ‘your new conf file’ /etc/wpa_supplicant/wpa_supplicant.conf”, you need to replace the whole ‘your new conf file’ with the path;
  5. Reboot the system;
  6. Done.
network={

                 ssid="eduroam" 

                 scan_ssid=1

                 key_mgmt=WPA-EAP 

                 eap=PEAP              

                 identity="youridentity@youridentitydomain" 

                 password="yourpassword" 

                 phase1="peaplabel=0" 

                 phase2="auth=MSCHAPV2" 

}
