About wireless network at Stockholm University

At Stockholm University there are two wireless networks, eduroam and SU , the IT department recommends eduroam .

Login to the SU network

When you connect to the wireless network and enter an Internet address into your browser, you will be automatically redirected to the service login page.

To get online, you must log in with:

N.B. If you are unable to log in, check on another computer if your account has been blocked.
Go to Kontohantering. You can see your status next to Trådlöst nätverk in the section Inställningar.

Transfer speeds

The network supports the IEEE 802.11a/g/n standards at both 2.4 and 5 GHz. Today, some places also support the newer IEEE 802.11ac standard, which enables higher speeds for a larger number of clients than before.

The actual speed depends on the distance to the base station, the number of users connected to the base station, and how much interference there is from other devices, such as microwave ovens.

LED lights on access points

We have many different types of access points at Stockholm University, but generally speaking, if the LED on an access point is blue, someone is connected to it; if the LED is green, no one is connected.

Security in the SU network

Traffic on the SU network is unencrypted. This means that other people in your vicinity can intercept what you send and receive over the network. Certain applications and protocols (e.g. SSL) encrypt the traffic separately. Websites that use secure connections, such as Internet banks, offer such encryption.
If security is a priority for you, please use eduroam instead.


Wireless networks are much more sensitive to interference than wired networks. This means that
IT Services cannot guarantee the same reliability on the wireless network as on the wired network. Our goal is obviously for the network to be available at all times, and we would be grateful if you report any errors to Helpdesk.


The radiation levels of wireless networks are far below the limits set by ICNIRP (International Commission on Non-Ionizing Radiation Protection). These limits apply to the EU, which includes Sweden. The radiation levels of wireless networks are generally one or more orders of magnitude below the radiation levels associated with mobile phones (GSM).
