Eduroam in the Windows 10 computers

The eduroam network settings and all required certificates have been installed on the Windows 10 computers at the university. To use eduroam on these computers, you only need to switch on wireless network (usually through a switch, sometimes through a software, depending on the model of the computer). If the computer is located within reach of the eduroam service area, it will automatically try to connect to the network.
Installation instructions for home computers.

You cannot connect to the eduroam network after changing the password. See Detailed instructions for repair instructions. -->
