If you prefer manual setup, you will find manual setup instructions further down this page.

If there is a problem, please contact us by e-mail at wlan@uni-bremen.de.


Step 1

First you have to download the CAT configuration tool, to do this open the item Network Connections in the Windows taskbar and connect to Wlan 'Uni-Bremen'.


Alternatively you can download the Cat-Tool via your Wlan at home or mobile data such as a hotspot (in this case continue from step 4).

Step 2

A login window will open in your browser, click on the link to the CAT-Eduroam configuration tool or use the link wlan.uni-Bremen.de/cat.

Step 3

In the following window, select the CAT configuration tool for your device/OS (in this case Windows 7) and start the download.

Step 4

Launch the downloaded application (eduroam-W7-Universitaet_Bremen-eduroam.exe)


The installation starts, click on next

In the following window you will be asked for your login data for the Eduroam network, enter them in the form username@uni-bremen.de and the corresponding password and confirm your entries with Enter.

 

Step 5

The connection is now established. If the connection is not established automatically, select the eduroam network manually and connect by clicking Connect.

Troubleshooting

If no connection is established, this can have various causes:

 

  •     The WLAN antenna of the notebook is deactivated. Usually, it is reactivated at the push of a button.
  •     If there is no access point with the eduroam network in the vicinity, the location must be changed.

If problems persist, our diagnosis page may be able to help.
