Wireless Authentication Project

Objective:

On June 23, 2013, the Division of Information Technology will be changing the way users connect to our on-campus wireless networks. The wireless network will change from our existing network, FIUSECURE, to our new network, FIU_SECUREWiFi. This new encrypted network will provide easier connectivity by allowing users to remain connected, without having to log-in multiple times throughout the day. Once the new wireless network is chosen, FIU faculty, staff, and students will be able to log-in with their MyAccounts credentials. Users will only have to authenticate once unless their password has changed or expired.

What’s Changing?
