Eduroam campus wifi network



I am looking for advice on how best to connect to eduroam. I have a research project I want to connect through resin and will be trying some things related to getting linux devices on eduroam.

In the larger picture however, a lot of universities use eduroam and if adding support or documentation for eduroam with Resin-wifi-connect is low hanging fruit then I would love to make this happen. It would be useful to connect devices to campus wifi networks using the captive portal.

I look forward to any thoughts or suggestions on this idea.

Thank you


Hi @kanr, I am one of the maintainers of resin-wifi-connect and I will look into your idea later today and will get back to you :slight_smile:
Thanks a lot for the interest,


i’ve just set this up, and had exacly the same conversation with a resin dev in the UK. Take a look at

specifically the section on WPA2-enterprise wifi connection

basically, you mount your download OS image and inspect the boot partition and look for the system-connections directory

you should be able to edit the file /system-connections/resin-wifi to add the correct network config

the wpa2-enterprise example worked for a me on eduroam here;


Thanks for trying it out, and giving feedback here. :slight_smile: We had some workshops and events at UK universities, and the network was almost always a tough part, good to know that we might have something to recommend the students (instead of 4G hotspots and similar “workarounds”). :wifi:


Currently resin-wifi-connect does not support connecting to WPA2 Enterprise authenticated networks. We had a couple of questions about it in the last year and most probably we will add that in a 3.X release in the near future. So for now only the method @danb describes will work for using a eduroam with resin.


I opened an issue in the resin-wifi-connect repo about adding WPA2 Enterprise in a future release:


All, Thanks so much for the replies I am very optimistic about my chances for success. I will keep this thread updated as I make progress.


I am using resin in teaching and research scenarios and a WPA2 enterprise would be a great help. very happy to beta test anything you get working…


Did/does your campus us certs with their eduroam logins? I tried this example just as you described and was not successful and my feeling is because when I connect with my phone or computer I have to accept a signed certificate. I can access the certificate in my macbook keychain so if its a matter of manually putting it on my device I can do that.

Thanks for the tips.

UPDATE: I made a goof in my edits. Your original suggestion worked. Thanks!


:smiley: v cool, I was talking with a resin dev at an industry thing last night and he said that this is apparently being worked on internally to make config and access simpler…


can i ask you where you screwed up? My file looks like this now.








Hi there! wifi-connect 4.2.0 was just released, and it adds WPA2 Enterprise support:
