WiFi-Access at Ruhr-University

At Ruhr-University, you have got several hotspots to gain access to the free WLAN. All students who are registered may get an user account from the network operation center. Once you got it, you are able to log in to WiFi. Now you need to setup eduroam. This is a newer WPA2-encrypted access, for which no VPN-client is needed. Configuration instructions can be found here.
