Beware that wired eduroam is not available at DTU.
Please note that the eduroam network name is case-sensitive, and the correct way is 'eduroam' (even though it is written with a capital E at the start of some sentences).

To connect your android device to eduroam use your DTU credentials, e.g. email@example.com, and DTU password. A connection to eduroam will automatically be made in future if Wi-Fi is switched on and you are within range.

If you have already entered your user and password, press and hold on the "eduroam" select "Forget network" to start the process again.
Before entering your credentials again look for "EAP method" in the same place as you are entering the user and password and change it to PEAP. "Phase2 authentication" should be MSCHAPV2.
On older Android versions some menus and wording may be different.
Press and hold on the "eduroam" net and two options will appear, press forget to start the process again.
Tap to set the Sub-type of PEAPv0/MSCHAPv2 if you have the option, but this ought to be the default.
Now you can enter your DTU credentials again and tap connect.
If you are able to obtain an IP, but not able to access any websites, please see the troubleshooting section for wireless. It also applies to eduroam. The DNS settings are usually to blame for this. They need to be set to automatic.
