Connecting to eduroam with Windows 10
eduroam is the preferred Wi-Fi network for students, faculty, staff and guests personally-owned devices to use that's secure and once set up, can be used throughout campus as well as any other university throughout the world that has an eduroam network.
To connect Windows 10/11 to eduroam you must have an active StarID account and current internet access. MavGUEST can be used if available.
1. From the device that you are trying to connect to eduroam, connect to the internet (MavGUEST is available for this purpose)
2. Using an Internet browser, navigate directly to wifi.mnsu.edu (available from on or off campus)
3. In the Select your device list, check that Windows 10 is selected
4. Click JoinNow.
5. Download the setup file when prompted
6. Go to your Downloads folder and click WiFi_Minnesota_State_University_Mankato_Wrapper.exe to open the installer
7. If a warning pops up, select Yes or Run to run the installer application
8. Select Next to proceed with the setup
10. Once you see the message Joined press Done to close the program
The Windows 10/11 computer should now be connected to the eduroam Wi-Fi network if the network is available where that device is currently located.
The installer will attempt to "forget" the MavNet and MavNet-Encrypted networks if they have been used before. Forgetting the other networks is desirable to ensure that the device will prefer to use eduroam whenever it is on campus. To check this:
1. Right-click on the Wi-Fi icon in the system tray and select Open network and system settings
2. Select Show available networks
3. Right-click on MavGuest, MavNet, and MavNet-Encrypted. If there is a Forget option in the menu, click Forget. If there is only a Connect menu item, do not click on Connect.
Your Windows 10/11 computer is now set up to use eduroam. It will work wherever you are throughout the world that an eduroam network is available as long as you are a current student or employee at Minnesota State University, Mankato. No future password changes will be needed now that you are on eduroam.
