Nokia Lumia (Windows Phone) and wireless network (Wi-Fi / WLAN)

Connecting to the JYU wireless network (jyu-student & jyu-staff) and to eduroam on Windows Phone devices

 With your JYU user account you can access three wireless networks:

  • jyu-student is for students at the JYU campus area
  • jyu-staff is for staff at the JYU campus area
  • eduroam can be used by students and staff on JYU campus as well as around the world on the campuses of many different academic institutions. More information about eduroam can be found here.

Note! Within JYU campus area please primarily use either jyu-student or jyu-staff networks!

jyu-student and jyu-staff work simply by connecting and typing in your JYU username + password. However due to data security reasons, it is highly recommended that you turn on the "validate server certificate" option in the wireless network settings. This cannot be done on older Windows Phone 7.x devices (e.g. Lumia 800), but it can be done on Windows Phone 8.x devices (e.g. Lumia 820).


eduroam works almost the same. The only difference is that when connecting to eduroam, you will need to type your username as username@jyu.fi (e.g. mameikal@jyu.fi)

 

Connecting to the wireless network

1. Open the "Settings" menu and select "WiFi"

 

2. As the wireless network select

    • jyu-student (for students)
    • jyu-staff (for staff)
    • eduroam (for students and staff, please see more information here)

        3. Type in your JYU username + password in the "Username" and "Password" fields. Note! when using eduroam you will need to type your username as username@jyu.fi (e.g. mameikal@jyu.fi)

        After that

        • In case you are using an older Windows Phone 7.x device (e.g. Lumia 800), select "Done" and move on to step 6
        • In case you are using a Windows Phone 8.x device (e.g. Lumia 820), scroll down the page

          4. Turn on the option "Validate server certificate" and select "choose a certificate"

           

          5. From the list select "US, DigiCert Inc, www.digicert..." (=DigiCert High Assurance EV Root CA). After this select "Done"

           

          6. Confirm connecting to the wireless network by selecting "Yes"

           

          7. The wireless network is now connected
