Campus wireless network changes: update

On February 3rd, Central IT made a change to the UMWPA wireless network. This change was made to decrease the complexity of authentication for campus users while also increasing security. As of February 3rd, UMWPA will only accept NetID credentials. It will no longer allow UM-domain (um\first.last) types of authentication nor will it allow GTC connections. In addition, users may be required to accept a new certificate.

If you or your device are impacted by this change, the easiest way to get connected again is to forget the UMWPA network and then reconnect the device leaving the default network authentication in place.  Use your NetID and password, and accept any certificate prompts you may receive.
