Department of Physics & Astronomy Wireless Network

The University of Utah provides two campus wireless networks: UConnect, a secure network for students, faculty, and staff; and UGuest, an unsecured network for visitors.

In addition, the University of Utah is part of the eduroam network, and offers secure wireless access to visitors from other participating institutions.

The UConnect Setup Wizard is the best way to configure your device to connect to the network; instructions are also available for setting up your device manually. For help connecting to the wireless network, contact the Campus Help Desk at (801) 581-4000, opt. 1.

To complete authorization, you need a valid uNID (University of Utah Network ID ) and password (distinct from the Physics & Astronomy Department Unix systems login password).

All wireless network problems should be reported to the Campus Help Desk, telephone 581-4000 option 1, since they serve as a single point-of-contact for problem management. Local systems and lab staff should normally not be contacted directly about wireless network problems.

Many more university wireless resources are available from University Information Technology where you can find advice on wireless cards, a frequently-asked questions list, maps of wireless network coverage at the University of Utah, and other useful resources.

For questions about the department wireless network, contact Brad Hawks, the department's UNIX system's administrator.
