An authentication pane will pop up. Fill in the following:

EAP Method: PEAP

Phase 2 Authentication: MSCHAPv2

Identity: your Emerson username (including @emerson.edu, which is required for eduroam)

Password: your Emerson password

Press Save (or Connect, depending on your device.)

Your device will send authentication information to and gather certificate information from our wireless authentication server, clearpass.emerson.edu , and you may be prompted to allow this connection. Do not accept connections to any other server name.

Once it's completed (in a moment or two), you will be connected.
