Make sure that your MRC CBSU user account has been enabled for eduroam access. If in doubt please contact the computing team.
- Open System Preferences, select Network

- Enter your User account password
- Select eduroam, from the Wireless Network dropdown list
- Click OK
- Click Apply
- In the Verify Certificate dialogue box, select Show Certificate
- You should only ever accept Certificates for “WSR-RADIUS-01.mrc-cbsu.local” or “WSR-RADIUS-02.mrc-cbsu.local”
- If and ONLY if the Certificate is for WSR-RADIUS-01 or WSR-RADIUS-02 and has mrc-cbsu-WSR-CA-01-CAwith in the Certificate chain then continue. Otherwise contact the CBSU computing group
- Tick Always trust “WSR-RADIUS-01.mrc-cbsu.local” or “WSR-RADIUS-02.mrc-cbsu.local”
- Click Continue
- Enter your local Mac OS X Username and Password, (not the eduroam ones!) then select OK
- You can now see that you are connected and authenticated
Your computer will now be authenticated to the network, after that you should be able to access the internet. If you get an error saying that authentication has failed, double-check the above steps.
All the settings you have made are stored in your computer and should not need re-entering each time you connect to the eduroam network.
