I can connect to my university's eduroam network but very often I lose the connection and cannot reconnect until I reboot the phone. Now I found an app called "eduroam fixer" in the market. What is this app supposed to do exactly, what does it differently to the built-in WPA enterprise support? I cannot properly test the app right now as I'm not anywhere near my campus.

I use the eduroam network in Erlangen without any problems or extra Apps. You should ask the developer about the App. – Flow Jun 8 '12 at 17:36
so someone can actually connect to eduroam? I have never been able to do it – santiagozky Jun 8 '12 at 18:00
I should add that I'm running ICS and the people I have asked who have Gingerbread cannot connect at all either. – Erik Jun 8 '12 at 22:31

Judging by the reviews on various sites, this app is unlikely to solve your need to reboot after the connection gets screwed up; users report the same thing occurring with the app.

This thread is particularly relevant. It seems that "Eduroam Fixer" is just a configurator. In particular it allows you connect to Eduroam by changing config files for you; this is useful on some ROMs which (for whatever reason) don't allow you to properly set the certificate through the interface. I'm not 100% clear on the details, but the people in that thread consider it a security risk.
