New Secure Wireless Network
September 7, 2012 – The Office of Information Technology (OIT) is pleased to announce a new secure wireless network for Faculty & Staff. In order to connect to UA-WPA2, you will need to install XpressConnect on your device by visiting: http://wpa2setup.ua.edu/CloudPath/. As part of the installation process, you will be required to enter your myBama ID and password.
UA-WPA2 provides secure wireless communications through the use of WPA2 Enterprise and will replace the pre-shared key SSID rolled out as an interim solution last year (PSK). Starting in October 2012, UA-WPA2 will replace UA Public Wireless for all Faculty and Staff.
