In order to provide campus a more secure wireless environment, the Office of Information Technology (OIT) announces that the UA-WPA-PSK wireless network will no longer be available for general use starting Monday, May 26th, 2014. OIT recommends that current UA-WPA-PSK wireless users register their devices on the more secure UA-WPA2 wireless network instead. If you own a device that is unable to connect to UA-WPA2 for technical reasons, please contact the OIT Service Desk for alternative arrangements. Instructions for connecting to UA-WPA2 can be found at http://oit.ua.edu/2012/09/07/new-secure-wireless-network/. This decision will not affect the availability of other wireless networks on campus. Please contact the OIT Service Desk (205-348-5555, firstname.lastname@example.org) with any questions.
