Connection to the network

The Wi-Fi network at Aurore is protected by WPA2-Enterprise authentication and the wired network is protected by an authentication by captive portal. In both cases the connection requires a login and a password.

No manipulation on the intranet is required to add a new machine: at the first connection your device will be automatically registered on your intranet account.

Username and password

The username and password needed to connect to the network are the same as for connecting to the intranet.

Do not log in with an account other than yours!

The machine MUST NOT be already registered on another account! If you lend your credentials, then this other person will no longer be able to register his machine on the network. If this is the case you need to contact us.

Wi-Fi on Windows 8, 8.1, 10 and 11

Select the Wi-Fi network Aurore, and enter your login and password directly. You should have Internet access in less than 10 minutes.

If you have a security alert regarding our certificates, ignore it the first time you connect and validate the certificate.

Wi-Fi on Windows XP, Vista ou 7

Windows 7 support has expired!

Microsoft has decided to no longer distribute security updates for Windows 7 since January 14, 2020. We strongly encourage you to upgrade to Windows 11 or Linux which in both cases is free.

We no longer support theses operating systems because they are no longer secure and cause security problems for the network.

Wi-Fi on MacOS

Select the Wi-Fi network Aurore and enter your login and password directly. You should have access to the Internet in less than 10 minutes.

Wi-Fi on Android

Select the Wi-Fi network Aurore.

Please choose:

  • EAP method: PEAP,
  • Authentication step 2: MSCHAPV2,
  • Enter your login and password directly.

You should have access to the Internet in less than 10 minutes.

Wi-Fi on iOS

Select the Wi-Fi network Aurore and enter your login and password directly. You should have access to the Internet in less than 10 minutes.

During the first connection the device asks you to trust our certificate.

Wi-Fi on Linux

The vast majority of Linux distributions (Ubuntu, Debian, Fedora…) use the NetworkManager tool to manage the Wi-Fi connection.

Select the wifi network Aurore then:

  • Authentication: Secure EAP (PEAP),
  • Phase 2 authentication: MSCHAPV2,
  • Check the box No CA certificate required, unless you want to download our certificate every 3 months,
  • Enter your login and password directly.

You should have access to the Internet in less than 10 minutes.

Wi-Fi on other devices

For game consoles, the vast majority (Xbox, Playstation, Nintendo Switch…) do not support WPA2-Enterprise. If you wish to connect this device, then you must either use the wired network, or buy a Wi-Fi router that you plug into the RJ45 port of your room to have your own Wi-Fi network.

The advantage of a router is to create your own private network, isolating your devices from other users.

Wired network

Each room has an “RJ45” Ethernet port. If you do not have a cable to connect your computer, you can purchase one from the intranet. You can also purchase a USB/USB-C to RJ45 adapter at any time.

Connect directly by cable, in your room for example. A pop-up window should open. If it doesn’t, go to http://intranet.auro.re/. Then identify yourself with your username and password and follow the instructions.

You should have access to the Internet in less than 10 minutes. You should also receive an email notification.

No web browser?

If you have a machine that can't surf the Internet (e.g. a Wi-Fi router), then you will need to manually create your wired machine. Get the MAC address of your machine, then log in to the intranet. Then click on create a machine, fill in the MAC and let the other parameters unchanged. Finally, connect the device to your outlet.
