Your Windows computer should now be connected to the eduroam Wi-Fi network if eduroam is available where your Windows computer is located.

The installer will attempt to forget the MavNet and MavNet-Encrypted networks if they have been used before. Forgetting the other networks is desirable to ensure that the device will prefer to use eduroam whenever it is on campus. To check this:

1. Right-click on the Wi-Fi icon in the system tray and select Open network and system settings

2. Select Show available networks

3. Right-click on MavGuest, MavNet, and MavNet-Encrypted. If there is a Forget option in the menu, click Forget. If there is only a Connect menu item, do not click on Connect.

 

Your Windows 10/11 computer is now set up to use eduroam. It will work wherever you are throughout the world that an eduroam network is available if you are a current student or employee at Minnesota State University, Mankato. Changing your StarID password will not require any Wi-Fi related updates on your Mac.
