PASSWORD CHANGES AND EDUROAM

Password caching in eduroam sometimes causes problems or lockouts when changing your MultiPass. Depending on the device this can be particularly tricky as some devices will fail to connect to eduroam and then try the next available network (CSMwireless). If the device is registered everything looks good to the user unless they happen to look at which network they are using. If you are experiencing this problem, please check the solutions below:

  • Start up your Keychain Access app, found in your Mac’s Applications > Utilities menu.
  • Search all entries for the term “eduroam” (without quotes).
  • Double-click on the eduroam entry to show attributes (alternatively, right-click on the eduroam entry and click Get Info).
  • Click Show password (authenticate as needed to proceed).
  • Change the password to your new MultiPass one.
  • Save these changes. You should now be able to connect to the eduroam network successfully.
