Connect to Eduroam using wpa_supplicant

I can never remeber how it’s meant to work, which normally results in lots of authentication errors and google queries. Less: /etc/wpa_supplicant/wpa_supplicant_edu.conf ctrl_interface=/var/run/wpa_supplicant eapol_version=1 ap_scan=1 fast_reauth=1 network={ ssid="eduroam" key_mgmt=IEEE8021X WPA-NONE WPA-EAP eap=PEAP identity="abc1@uni.ac.uk" password="*****" #ca_cert="/location/of/cert" # This might not be required. phase2="auth=MSCHAPV2" priority=2 auth_alg=OPEN } As this will contain your password make sure that only root has read access! That’s all there is to it. But seeing as I have done this in Arch Linux I’ll include the extra steps taken to get it fully working.
