  2. Set the device to flight mode
    (possibly: restart the device),

Printing via WiFi in the halls of residence

The Bauhaus-Universität Weimar offers the »eduroam« WiFi in the student halls of residence. This WiFi requires authentication in accordance with the IEEE 802.1x network standard.

If your printer does not support this standard, it cannot be used via the »eduroam« WiFi. In this case, depending on the printer model, you may have the following alternatives:

  • USB cable,
  • Wifi- /Wireless-Direct-Print ((The drivers can be obtained via apps from the various manufacturers.),
  • Cloudprinting (e.g. GoogleCloud Print, Apple AirPrint) or
  • Bluetooth

The SCC does not provide support for these alternatives and asks that requests to the user service of this kind be refrained from.

The eduroam SSID is not visible

The access points for »eduroam« are currently being exchanged at the Weimar universities.
Some computers with Intel WLAN cards no longer see the SSID »eduroam«.
Please update your driver for the WLAN network card.
