It took me a while to figure out how to connect my Nokia 5800 phone to the University of Groningen’s eduroam WiFi network. I’m posting the settings here for anyone interested.

First of all you need to install a certificate file onto your phone. Just copy it to your phone’s SD card and open it using the file manager, or browse to this webpage and download the file directly. Say yes if your phone asks if it should install the certificate. You can grab the file from here.

After installing the certificate, goto Settings, Connectivity, Destinations, Internet.

There you can add new access points. The University of Groningen uses three WiFi networks, eduroam, Eduroam and Rug-FN2. They all use the same settings. The settings should look like the ones in the screenshots below. Make sure you substitute the username with your own.

After that I figured it out myself anyway ­čÖé Thanks!

… too late I discovered you also made an updated manual ­čÖé http://www.aswinvanwoudenberg.com/index.php/2011/05/27/updated-eduroam-settings-for-the-nokia-5800/
