Fin de servicio red inalámbrica en Windows XP y Vista

A partir del 22 de noviembre de 2017, los dispositivos con Windows XP y Windows Vista no podrán seguir utilizando la red inalámbrica eduroam en la Universidad de Alicante.


Esto es debido a que dichos sistemas operativos han quedado obsoletos y no soportan los nuevos algoritmos de seguridad.

Change certified eduroam

El servicio de autenticación de eduroam de la Universidad de Alicante requiere actualizar el certificado de conexión a la red inalámbrica.


Con fecha 18 de julio de 2016, se ha sustituido el certificado CA inal09 por inal16. Los dispositivos (portátil, móvil, tablet, etc.) que no estén actualizados con el nuevo certificado, darán error al conectarse a la red inalámbrica.

Problem to install the CA certificate Wi-Fi Android 4.3

Sometimes, from Android 4.3, installing Certificate UA wifi, the device requires a password for "credential storage". The Android device itself generates this password and is unknown.

In this case, to be able to install the certificate, you must first access settings  → Security → screen lock and select a Pin or password.

Once configured a secure screen lock method, you can install the certified wifi without problems.


  • If after the certificate is installed, you change screen lock mode, previously installed certificate will not be valid and you will have to install it again and select eduroam configuration.
  • We have found that on certain occasions the pattern is Yes accepted to install the certificate.
Clone mobiles

The emergence of a large number of manufacturers of clone mobile phones has resulted in many of them not meeting the standards. 

This may not cause problems in home wifi connections, but it will certainly hinder connectivity in company networks such as the University's. Therefore, these phones may experience navigation and connectivity problems or not work at all with the University of Alicante's wireless network. 

Technical support will not be available for these types of devices.
