Eduroam (the university network) isn't detected by my laptop (Ubuntu 12.4). Wireless is on and it does detect other wireless networks. Eduroam doesn't show up as an option. (it does show up on my android phone and my collegue's windows laptops and ipads)

I've tried adding it manually (checked the security settings several times now) and connecting to it through 'Connect to hidden wireless network' but this doesn't work. It asks for the CA certificate, I select that there is none and not to ask again and it asks me for Authentication. I enter my university log-in information and press 'connect'. It then keeps trying to connect for a while, but fails.

Any ideas why eduroam doesn't show up in my list of available networks?
