Step 2. Enter your username and password

Before you login, ensure the 'Use my Windows user account' box is unticked.

  • For the UQ Wifi network: Use your UQ username and password and click 'OK'. Students: your username starts with an 's' and is the same as for mySI-net or myUQ (e.g. s123456).
  • For the Eduroam network: Use the username format username@uq.edu.au and your UQ password. Students: your username prefix starts with an 's' (e.g. s123456@uq.edu.au). Staff: your username prefix starts with 'uq' (e.g. uqjblog3@uq.edu.au).


Step 3. Accept the certificate

You may also be asked to verify a certificate when connecting for the first time. This will be named either uq.edu.au or eduroam.uq.edu.au.

Click 'Continue' to accept the certificate. When you are connected Eduroam will report as 'Connected and Secured'.
