Wichterle Hig School is connected to eduroam
The eduroam federation is an international project that promotes mobility and roaming in National Research and Education Networks (NRENs). In the Czech Republic, the project is represented by CESNET. Our school joined the project in 2023. This was a further step towards improving the quality of study provision and the prestige of the institution.
One account. Anywhere.
A registered participant can use this wireless network (wherever it is available) with one user account. The account is administered by the home (setting up) organization.
Using roaming is simple, a properly configured subscriber’s device connects automatically when the eduroam network is available. This is similar to how roaming connections to foreign mobile operator networks work. Hence the acronym: education roaming.
The service is free for all subscribers.
Activating an eduroam account
The username used in eduroam consists of two parts – the username itself and the real name. The username you are used to from other school systems will be followed by the @ sign and the realm wigym.cz. You will also need to set up an eduroam password before you can use roaming.
Setting up user devices to connect to eduroam
To connect to eduroam securely, it’s not enough to just enter a username and password. You also need to set up certificate checking, the easiest way to do this is with eduroam CAT, see the documentation on eduroam.cz.
For manual setup you will need the following information:
network name (SSID): eduroam
connection protocol: 802.1x
security and encryption: WPA2/AES
Authentication: PEAP (alternatively TTLS)
Internal authentication protocol: MS-CHAPv2
RADIUS server name: freeradius.wigym.cz
Certification Authority: which certificate to use?
IP address is assigned automatically via DHCP
eduroam is broadcast throughout the interior of the school, including the building with the language classrooms. Access to the campus is allowed between 6:30am and 6:00pm from September to June.
