Wi-Fi Protected Access – UA-WPA2

As of Monday, May 26, 2014, UA-WPA-PSK wireless network will no longer be available for general use. All campus users will have to re-register their wireless device(s) to connect to the more secure wireless network, UA-WPA2. The authentication process for connecting to UA-WPA2 requires your myBama username and password. If you have not updated your password within the last 90 days, the authentication process will not allow you to connect successfully. To update your password, please visit https://myBama.ua.edu and click on the “Reset your password” link.

Campus users will need to install XpressConnect on their wireless device(s). Download the setup application from http://wpa2setup.ua.edu/CloudPath/. Instructions for installing XpressConnect client for a variety of devices and a troubleshooting guide are listed below.
