We are now offering a new wireless network in addition to midd_secure, midd_unplugged, and Midd-standard. The new network is called eduroam. If you’ve never heard of it, see https://www.eduroam.org/ for more information.
Eduroam has become very popular at Colleges and Universities in Europe as a way for faculty, staff and students to be able to access the Internet wirelessly while visiting other participating institutions. It is now starting to take hold in the US as well. By becoming a participating member of Eduroam, we can offer wireless Internet access in a secure and reliable manner to Eduroam-participating school members without having to have them register ahead of time. And our faculty, staff and students will have wireless Internet access while visiting at other participating institutions.
You will know you are at a participating institution if you see a network called ‘eduroam’ listed. To use eduroam when traveling, you will need to enter your full “firstname.lastname@example.org” and password. See https://confluence.terena.org/display/H2eduroam/endusers for documentation on configuring eduroam on your device.
While you are here on campus, there would be no reason for Middlebury folks to use the eduroam network. While it will work for you, it is designed for guests and will not give you the access or speed that you enjoy using midd_secure.
