Bring your own computer to campus and connect to the wireless network. You can put your laptop in a safe-deposit box if you do not want to carry it all day (In Karlskrona there are safe-deposit boxes in the hallway between the reception (building A) and the library (building H).)
Where can I connect?
You can connect to the wireless network on all campuses in all of BTH's premises.
Note: BTH´s wired and wireless network has different rules for accessing different systems and services. For that reason is it important to shut down the wireless network when you use a wired connection, otherwise your computer will try to connect to services not accessable. Your computer can be very slow when it is in this wait mode.
What do I need?
You can connect your computer, mobile phone or other devices such as surf boards to BTH's wireless network.
You need a computer that is equipped with a wireless network card. (BTH's equipment supports 802.11a, 802.11b, 802.11g, and 802.11n). Information on what your card is using is normally found on the card.) You also need a student account to access the wireless network.
Which networks can I use?
Eduroam - for BTH students and for students from other paticipating institutions.
Eduroam- username and password
First, you have to generate an eduroam-password via https://studentportal.bth.se/web/studentportal.nsf/web.xsp/generate_eduroam_password. The password is displayed on your screen, but also sent as an e-mail and SMS (to the phone number registered in the Student portal).
The password is changed for each collection. When you get a new password you need to change at all configured devices (computer, mobile phone or other device).
The username for eduroam is firstname.lastname@example.org (replace xxxx12 with your username).
