New Wireless Networks on Campus

Filed under Administrative, Information Tech on May 12, 2012.

UF’s new wireless networks opened for testing on May 6. Testing is open on Main campus and Housing and Residence Education areas. Improvements as a result of the Unified Network Project include a common access method across campus, credential caching to avoid having to repeatedly log in, and better security for wireless devices using the network.

Wi-Fi users will see two new wireless service set identifiers:

1.
“uf” for general GatorLink access
2.
“ufinfo” for assistance with configuration and problem resolution

The new Wi-Fi networks require users to configure their wireless devices. Users who connect via “ufinfo” will automatically be directed to a welcome page with instructions and links. After configuration is complete, users may connect to “uf” and login via GatorLink. Please contact the UF Computing Help Desk if you have questions or problems connecting to the new UF Wi-Fi networks.
