The configura-eduroam wifi network

In the Department of Industrial Engineering a wifi network named "configura-eduroam" is available; by means of this network you may access the Eduroam CAT portal. This network is available for free access and allows to navigate on the CAT portal only.

Once you are connected to configura-eduroam, if your system does not open automatically, open a browser and go to any non HTTPS web site (e.g. http://www.unipd.it). You will be redirected to a captive portal by means of which you may succesively access the CAT portal.

NB: from inside this network the Play Store is not accessible.

You may find this network in many other locations of University of Padova, called Green Points.
