Frequently Asked Questions

How can I use the dormitory's Wi-Fi network, "kollegium"?

In the building K0-1-2-3 and 4 you can use the "kollegium" Wi-Fi network. Your login credentials are identical to your szewlan/eduroam username/password. In Széchenyi University, your username is your_neptun_code@net.sze.hu and the initial password is your birth date (only 8 digits: YYYYMMDD) and your Education ID (11 digits, you can check it in Neptun, on the My data/Personal information page).

So if your Neptun code is ABCDEF and you were born in 1990.12.23 and your Education ID is 12345678901, your username is abcdef@net.sze.hu and your password is 1990122312345678901. If you had an eduroam username in your sending institution, you can also use that username/password on the kollegium, eduroam and szewlan WiFi networks.
Required setting: security protocol WPA2 (EAP method: PEAP, Phase 2 authentication: MSCHAPv2, CA certificate: do not validate)

There is also a setup tool, which can help set up your computer: https://cat.eduroam.org/?idp=651

You can change your eduroam password here: https://acs.sze.hu/secure/login.htm
In this site, you can also check your credentials validity. If you try to log on, the following messages could appear:
  • Error: Login Failed. Your username is exists in the system, but the password that you provided was wrong.
  • Error: Login Failed: Invalid User Your username is not exists in the system. The user generation is a manual process, so it is normal during the first few weeks of the semester.
If you forgot you password or if you would like to inquire about the non-exists user, you can do this at the site help.sze.hu

What is NAT? Can I use it?

Network Address Translation is a way of sharing your internet connection to other devices. In the dormitory, any kind of sharing (hotspot, for example) is strictly forbidden and leads to the immediate ban of the source IP address for at least 1,5 hour.
If you would use new devices, you should register them under registered devices and IP addresses.

If your IP address is got banned, and you stopped the sharing or whatever caused the NAT, you should let us know about it in the error reporting area. The unblocking of the addresses is a manual process.

I had a problem while I was try to login or register to the user.sze.hu site...

You can use the eduID centralized directory identifier in many sites on the University. This system is not managed by us!

How can I find my device's MAC address?

Windows 2000/XP/7:
Start menu, Run: cmd.exe type in ipconfig /all
Here you need to look at the lines starting with Physical Address. There may be more than one line. If you are connected to a network via UTP cable you should choose one under Ethernet adapter Local Area Connection, or if you use Wi-Fi, then the one following Wireless LAN adapter Wireless Network Connection.

Windows 8/10:
This process is similar to the previous version of Windows, but the command line can be started on the desktop by right-clicking the Start menu icon.

Linux distribution:
Terminal: ifconfig
Here, lines with HWaddr contains the relevant data.

OS X:
Terminal: networksetup -listallhardwareports
The MAC address is displayed in the line starting with Ethernet Address.
