My previous attempts to get eduroam wifi with wpa_supplicant more or less worked. But some recent updates seem to have made everything unstable again. So why not try iwd

It doesn't work at another location back to wpa_supplicant

UvA (University of Amsterdam)

The only account I have access to right now, they supposedly use TTLS with MSCHAPV2 for phase2, which works as described for wpa_supplicant, but iwd is weird and the error messages are beyond useless even with debugging turned on. Following the advice of some archlinux forum post to "play around with the eap method", PEAP works :facepalm:
