Windows Phone 7 Settings

Tip: You can access this site from on campus, including from a dedicated network for performing initial configuration of devices to connect to the University Wi-Fi. To connect to this special network, choose network name / SSID 'UoR-Setup' and enter network key 'ConnectMe' when prompted.

This page explains how to connect a device running Windows Phone 7 to eduroam. Separate instructions are available for Windows Phone 8 and Windows Mobile / CE devices.

Configure Wi-Fi settings

  1. From the home screen, swipe to the Settings menu.
  2. Choose Wi-Fi and ensure Wi-Fi networking is set to On.
  3. Select eduroam from the list of networks.
  4. Enter your University username with @reading.ac.uk added on the end (e.g. ab123456@reading.ac.uk).
  5. Carefully enter your University password.
  6. Choose Done.
  7. Your device should now connect to eduroam.

Troubleshooting

If you cannot connect, check that:

  • You are at a location with good signal strength.
  • You have remembered to add @reading.ac.uk to the end of your username.
  • You are typing your University password correctly.

These settings will only work if you have a University of Reading username - if you are from a different organisation, you will need to refer to your home organisation for the correct instructions.
