INTRO: Hello and welcome to UT!
WHO/WHAT/WHY/HOW: This video will be introducing the networking system options provided at UT. The University has 4 different wifi networks: Utexas, utexas-iot, utguest, and eduroam. Each network has different features in terms of eligibility, usage, and access.
The Utexas network provides wireless, high speed internet connection. This network is restricted to current UT affiliates, and can be joined by signing in with your EID credentials. In addition, this network is closely monitored due to its capability to access secure sites.
The utexas-iot network is another wireless, high speed internet connection. This network is used to connect wireless devices that only allow the input of a wifi password, rather than EID credentials. Similar to the utexas network, the utexas-iot network can be accessed by those with current affiliations.
The UTguest network is a basic, open network. This network is designed to be used by visitors of the university. In addition, this network does have some limitations, and is 20 times slower than the ‘utexas’ network. Current UT affiliates need to connect to the Utexas network to ensure access to university sites and should not be connected to utguest for any reason.
The Eduroam network is a secure, world-wide roaming access service. It can be accessed by those with login credentials from other universities. This network allows current affiliates of other universities to connect to a wifi network.
We will be walking you through how to connect a device to the utexas network.
First, select the utexas network from your list of wifi networks. In the pop up, please enter your EID credentials and click join. You should now be successfuly connected to the utexas network.
HOW TO CONNECT: Step by step instructions on how to connect different devices to the network as well as troubleshooting information can be found at these websites.
