User Manual ◊ Wireless VU-Campusnet and Eduroam Macintosh OSX 10.6 ◊ July 2011 ◊ version 2.0
This document describes how to make a wireless connection between a notebook with Macintosh
OSX 10.6 (Snow Leopard) and the VU-Campusnet or the eduroam wireless network of the VU
University Amsterdam.
VU-Campusnet
The VU-Campusnet is intended for use by all students and employees of the VU University
Amsterdam and can be used by all persons in possession of a VU-net-id username and password
combination. The network is available on the campus area. Devices that only support WPA/TKIP and
not the newer WPA2/AES should use this network as eduroam only supports WPA2/AES.
eduroam
The eduroam network is a network available at numerous educational institutes around Europe and
other parts of the world. Persons with a VU-net-id will be able to use the eduroam network of other
institutes, connected to the eduroam network, and guests from other institutes are able to use the
eduroam network at the VU University Amsterdam. More information about eduroam can be found
on this website: http://www.eduroam.org

If you run an older version of Mac OS X, update your
mac first by clicking on Software Update… and then
follow the on-screen instructions. Obviously, you will
need an active Internet connection to download any
