Connect To Eduroam or Dartmouth Secure Wireless Using Linux


Eduroam and Dartmouth Secure wireless use open standards, such as 802.1x with WPA2 and PEAP. These standards are supported by the latest versions of Linux. However, not all Linux systems are alike; some have graphical tools to use these standards, while others require you to use command line configurations. There are many user groups on the Internet that may be able to help you determine the correct configuration for your Linux operating system and hardware. The most commonly reported problem is with out-of-date or unavailable hardware drivers.

We recommend trying our manual installation steps for setting up access to Eduroam (recommended) instead of Dartmouth Secure wireless (service ending soon). See Eduroam Wireless Network.
