UA Public Wireless Network Discontinued

In early 2014, the University of Alabama will decommission the UA public wireless network. All users will be required to log on to UA-WPA2 instead. The Office of Information Technology is making this change in order to provide the most up-to-date wireless security and scalability in our wireless infrastructure. The change will not affect other wireless networks in use on campus. For additional details, go to www.oit.ua.edu anyone with questions should contact the IT Service Desk at itsd@ua.edu or 205.348.5555. Thank you
