    • You have a valid HFU account.

  2. Quick Reference Guide

    • Turn on your wi-fi.

    • Select the SSID "HFU Open" from the wi-fi list displayed and connect.

  3. Settings

    Most current operating systems find the correct settings on their own, only prompt for authentication and, if necessary, ask for certificate verification. To check this, here are the settings in detail again:

    • Type : WPA2/Enterprise

    • Authentication: Protected EAP (PEAP)

      - Certificates: We strongly recommend to import the certificates
