The recommended wireless service for all University users is the encrypted eduroam network.
You will need to configure your device once, from then on you will be logged in automatically as if you were at home using your wireless broadband.
Using eduroam allows you to securely access the internet from any eduroam-enabled institution around the world:
eduroam is a secure wireless network, part of the JANET Roaming Service (JRS). Users are able to log on to the eduroam wireless service at any participating institution using their home credentials (computerID and password).
The service is based on a RADIUS infrastructure that uses 802.1x security for authentication. eduroam uses the WPA/WPA2 standards for secure encryption. This means eduroam uses your computerID and password to verify who you are, then provides secure, encrypted access to University resources and the Internet.
We recommend that you configure your wireless device to connect to the secure wireless network, eduroam.
We have tested eduroam on the following operating systems:
The guides on the right should help you configure your mobile device.
Further assistance connecting to eduroam can be obtaned from Library Information Points.
It may not always be possible to help you configure your device, if you are using a third party wireless client that we have not seen before. We don't want to mess up your other connections.
