I'm receiving a certificate warning
Deakin has a requirement to periodically update the certificate used to secure the wi-fi network. If your device has an outdated certificate you may receive notification to update it.
By selecting Accept Certificate, the certificate will update and allow your device to connect to eduroam.
I still cannot connect!
If all else fails, remove the current eduroam configuration and set it up again.
