Connecting to eduroam after password change

Sometimes eduroam does not accept the new password and keeps asking for it. In that case you need to reinstall the SecureW2 software, needed for eduroam. On this page you can read how to set that up for different operating systems.

For a Windows computer, follow the instructions below:

Step 1: Remove the old SecureW2 software

  • Click on the Windows start button on the bottom left to open the Windows menu.
  • Open the Control Panel and choose Programs > Programs and Features.
  • Click with your right mouse button on SecureW2, then click on 'Uninstall’.

Step 2: Reinstall SecureW2

  • Open an internet browser and go to http://wifiportal.hva.nl.
  • Enter your AUAS ID@hva.nl (NOTE: this is not your email address) and the new password.
  • Click on 'JoinNow’.
  • After these steps you can connect to eduroam.

To restore the eduroam connection on a Mac, it is necessary to replace the Wireless Profile.
