 +=====What should I do if the eduroam setup is not successful with the CAT tool?=====
-=== Note in term of an incorrect connection: ===+Please first delete the existing eduroam profile on your system. Then use the CAT tool to set up eduroam again.
-In the past it happened quite often, that Wi-Fi was not always available. The reason ​for this was mostly the internal Windows driver for the wireless adapter. To eliminate this error, please use the current WLAN driver from your laptop manufacturer'​s website and install it. In the case that no Windows 8 or 8.1 drivers are available, please use the latest ​Windows ​7 drivers.+**Instructions ​for deleting ​the eduroam profile under Windows**
 +1. Please open the "​Command Prompt"​ window. \\
 +For example, you can open the "​Command Prompt"​ window by typing the command //cmd// into the search field // Enter text here to search// in the menu bar at the bottom of the screen and then pressing the Enter key.
-Sometimes Windows 8 use a default profile for the connection with the "eduroam" ​WiFi- Network and you cant't change ​the Settings anymoreIn this case you must delete these default ​profile+2. In the "Command Prompt" ​window, enter the following command(If the eduroam ​profile ​has not been successfully deleted, please use **name=Eduroam**!)\\
-To delete the default profile, use the shortcut "​Windows + Q" and open the "​Command Prompt"​. Then type the command: ​//**netsh wlan delete profile name = "eduroam"**// and press "​Enter"​. If you have a different name for your network, ​ replace the word "​eduroam"​ with you current networkname. ​+**//netsh wlan delete profile name=eduroam//**
-{{ :​en:​services:​network_services:​eduroam:​win8_terminal.png?direct |Delete Networkprofile manually}}+{{ :​en:​services:​network_services:​eduroam:​eduroam_win10_13_blank.png?direct |}}
-==== Note ====+Result:  
 +The eduroam profile is now deleted from your system.
-A secure, encrypted connection can also be established without validating the server certificate. The certificate ensures the client that the connection is made to a legitimate access point of the intendet wireless network. Therefore validation is recommended. 
-If the certificate is not available from the list it can be downloaded from [[http://​ca.gwdg.de]] with a right-click on the installation link, selecting download and installing it with a double click. The certificate is also available through the update of the "root certificates" ​ [[http://​windowsupdate.microsoft.com]] or from the "​optional updates"​ of the Windows Update application (see also KB931125). 
-If authentication fails despite correct username and password the cause may be a certificate problem. For testing the validation can be disabled.
