Wifi access on CERN site

Wi-fi Connection

At CERN you can connect your device with EDUROAM using your host institution credentials (a page of agreement on the CERN rules will be proposed you at the first connection)

On  site we suggest you do not connect to the CERN-VISITOR network as this need to be renewed each 24h.  
Please use the CERN network instead.

  • In order to connect to the CERN network before your arrival, you must know your mac address (or also called hardware address) and register your device.  
    Go to the page :  
    Fill the form with your data and select Kate ROSS or Caroline CAZENOVES as contact person

You can register as many devices as you need in this way (please one registration for one device)

  • If you didn’t register your laptop before your arrival (or if something went wrong), once at CERN, if you select the CERN network the registration page will be open for you and ask to register. Do it selecting the Guest option and again put Kate ROSS or Caroline CAZENOVES as responsible.

Please note too that if the option “private wi-fi address” is activated on your device, this means that you get a new mac-address each time you restart it. Consequently, you will have to register your device from scratch each time you do it. (Valid only if you turn it off ).
