    These steps appear to be outdated, or at least different from what I see on the latest Android 14 version on a Google Pixel phone.

    I have found success connecting with these steps:

    • EAP method: PEAP
    • Phase 2 authentication: MSCHAPV2
    • CA certificate: Use system certificates
    • TLS version: TLS v1.2
    • Online Certificate Status: Request certificate status
    • Domain:
    • Identity: MIT email address, e.g. ""
    • Anonymous identity: Leave blank (it may be autofilled as "anonymous"; delete it if so)
    • Password: your MIT Kerberos password

    Example screenshot:

    You might need to disable Private DNS under Settings > Network & Internet > Private DNS (further testing needed). It can be re-enabled after the initial connection to Eduroam. I have been able to successfully re-connect to Eduroam without disabling Private DNS again.

    If you receive an authentication error after following these steps, try toggling Wi-Fi off and back on, and let it auto-connect to Eduroam.

    My experience has not been 100% consistent even on my single device, but I hope this helps others who are having trouble connecting.

      You are a hero. I've been battling with this for a week. Thank you.
