When connecting to the eduroam network, you may see several other networks including attwifi. We own both of these networks but sometimes users may connect to the other networks accidentally. On many devices, once you connect to a network one time, the system will continue to try to connect to that network as a default. If you are having that issue, follow the directions below to remove connections to the network for your particular device.

Note: When you change your HawkID password, you may need to use these directions to update the password in your device for the eduroam network.
