Depending on the operating system of your device(s), you might only have to enter the credentials, or various connection parameters. Below is a table with the required values:

Encryption type AES
EAP type Protected EAP (PEAP)

Anonymous identity leave blank
Server Certificate none (disable verification)
Use this network only if you cannot connect to one of the other two. No setup is needed but everytime you reconnect you will have to enter the credentials through a web page before you get access to the Internet.

In the guest houses of the ICTP the signal strength can vary a lot from room to room.  However there are normal ethernet connections available in all rooms.
