How do I setup the Wireless network on my Google (Android) device?
A:
You can manually configure your Android device to access the UTPA wireless network by following the steps below. Only devices running Android 2.3 Gingerbread or later will be able to connect.
  • Got to Settings, and select Wireless & Networks.
  • Select Wi-Fi settings.
  • Select eduroam from the list of available networks.
  • Enter the information listed below, if your phone has additional fields to fill, you may leave them blank:
    • Network SSID: eduroam
    • Security: 802.1x Enterprise
    • EAP method: PEAP
    • Phase 2 authentication: MSCHAPV2
    • Identity: Enter your UTPA username in the following format: username@utpa.edu (Note: This is not an email address, it is to specify the university you attend, e.g. STC students visiting UTPA will need to enter username@southtexascollege.edu)
    • Anonymous identity: Leave blank*

  • Select Save to establish connection.
