eduroam is the primary campus Wi-Fi network, and should be the first choice for anyone with a CalNet ID and for visitors from eduroam participating institutions.
Berkeley-IoT is available for simpler devices (such as, but not limited to: classroom clickers, digital signage, e-readers, game consoles, printers, projectors, lab equipment, IoT devices, microcontrollers, or SoCs) which are not capable of connecting to eduroam. Please see the Berkeley-IoT FAQ for more details. Berkeley-IoT MUST NOT be used for devices with access to P3 or P4 data.
Berkeley-Visitor is available for visitors and guests, and provides limited network access.
More information about all campus wireless networks can be found here.
To use eduroam, you must first create an eduroam key using the Wi-Fi Keys application. This is a special passphrase that is only used for eduroam connections. If you do not already have network access, the Berkeley-Visitor wireless network can be used to set your eduroam key.
Detailed instructions for setting eduroam keys can be found here.
When logging in to eduroam, use your CalNetID@berkeley.edu (e.g. email@example.com) as your username, and your Wi-Fi Key as the password.
Visitors from other eduroam participating institutions do not need to generate an eduroam key, and should instead use their credentials from their home institution.
Some devices may require additional information:
- Wireless Security: WPA2 Enterprise, with AES encryption
- EAP Method: PEAP
- Key Type: Automatic
- Phase2 Type: MSCHAPV2
- Domain: berkeley.edu
- Identity: yourCalnetID@berkeley.edu
- Password: (your Wi-Fi Key)
To use Berkeley-IoT, you must first register your device and generate a key using the Wi-Fi Keys application. You will need the wireless MAC address of your device, and a key will be generated that is specific to that device. If you do not already have network access, the Berkeley-Visitor wireless network can be used to register your device.
Detailed instructions for Berkeley-IoT registration can be found here.
When logging in to Berkeley-IoT, use the key generated for your device as the password.
If you need to bulk register a large number of devices for Berkeley-IoT, please contact Berkeley IT Client Services.
Visitors from eduroam participating institutions may log into eduroam using their credentials from their home institution.
Guests who need assistance getting their laptops online should ask their sponsors to provide them with technical support. Sponsors can hire CUSG for this purpose.
