You can connect your mobile devices to fast and free broadband Internet everywhere on campus. Furthermore, students have access to special network resources provided by the institutions of the university, such as the online databases of the Mannheim University Library.
Please turn mobile hotspotson your smartphones off. These hotspots diminish the bandwidth on campus and disrupt the entire network!
Another tip for a quicker Internet connection:
Turn off the wireless on your device, when you have taken your seat, and wait a moment. As soon as you turn the wireless on again, your device searches for a connection to the nearest Access Point.
In order to connect to the wireless network, please select the service set identifier (SSID) “eduroam”. To install wireless on your device please use the eduroam installer.
Under https://cat.eduroam.org/ you can download installation programs for all commonly used operating systems and many different browsers. The installation programs are easy to understand and will guide you through the individual steps of the installation process.
In case of previous installations via https://cat.eduroam.org, there may be problems with the configuration. In this case, please remove the wireless profile “eduroam” from your device and repeat the installation process. Please note the processes described above for the individual operating systems.
