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.

For instructions on installing UA-WPA2’s XpressConnect client, click here.  There you will find step-by-step instructions for a variety of devices as well as a troubleshooting guide.

If you need assistance downloading the XpressConnect client or have difficulties connecting to UA-WPA2, please contact the IT Service Desk at itsd@ua.edu or 205-348-5555.
