This guide can be used by both employees and students at UiB.


Step 1: Make sure your wireless network card is turned on. To check this, look for the wireless network symbol in the bottom right hand corner of your screen. If there is a red x over the symbol, it means your wireless nettwork card is switched off.


Step 2: Click on the symbol for wireless network in the bottom right hand corner of your screen(it will look similar to a set of stairs.)


Step 3: Check the displayed list of networks. If eduroam is avaliable it should appear in the list.
