After completing the instructions, connect to the eduroam wireless network here on campus and go to http://eduroamtest.sou.edu. If you can't load the page, something is wrong. If the page loads, your computer is setup for eduroam and you can go back to your normal wireless network (SOU Wireless, SOU-Secure) to resume browsing the internet.
