You can use Wi-Fi all over the in-house area in JAIST include research buildings, lecture buildings, library, commons, and Tokyo Satellite (except staff housing).

Supporting Wi-Fi standard

  • 2.4GHz band : 802.11g / 802.11n
    We don't support 802.11b because it's slow connection, but consume high bandwidth. If you need to connect 802.11b only device to Wi-Fi for your research, please contact us.
  • 5 GHz band : 802.11a / 802.11n / 802.11ac

Settings for JAIST Wi-Fi

You need a "digital certificate" first, to connect your PCs to JAIST Wi-Fi service.

1.     (If you want,) Apply the request for changing E-mail address.

2.     Get your digital certificate

3.     And set-up your PCs to connect to Wi-Fi network

Followings are the basic setting information:

  • Security type : WPA2 - Enterprise
  • Encryption type : AES
  • Authentication Method : EAP-TLS
  • User ID : [Your JAIST account]
    • Ex. If you are student, use style instead of changed E-mail address.

Please check following links to get step-by-step instructions on each operating systems.

Pocket Wi-Fi and wireless access points

Pocket Wi-Fi use and other on campus private access point causes deterioration of wireless environment due to interference, please refrain from using it as much as possible and use wireless LAN service provided by Information Infrastructure Research Center instead.


However, in cases where there is a necessity for research, or in case the electromagnetic wave condition in your room is extremely bad or difficult to receive the center provided service, you can install and use it. In that case, we strongly urge you to set the following settings in order to reduce interference to other users. Please note that we cannot support inquiries regarding Pocket Wi-Fi or access points purchased by private individuals or laboratories.

  • Set the radio output as low as possible (minimum setting just enough for your dormitory etc).
    ※ It is not the case at all that the stronger the electric wave output is, the better the electric wave environment is. On the contrary, if the electric wave output is high, the interference increases and the quality worsens.
  • When using of 802.11b / g / n (2.4 GHz band), choose channel 1.


Especially, at the student dormitory, though wireless LAN service is being implemented at the center, severe interference has occurred due to the influence of many access points placed in each room, and the situation is of very low quality. The deterioration of quality leads to the emergence of new access points with high radio wave output, and the interference is further increased, and everyone is in a vicious circle unsatisfied. Please cooperate for better management environment.

PCs without a wired LAN connector, such as notebook PCs, can be connected to a wired LAN by using a wired LAN adapter with a USB connection. The shape of the USB terminal is Type-A / Type-C, and you need to choose the one that suits your PC (the Surface is Type-A).
