Wireless networks at UTC
These are the wireless networks currently available across the entire campus.
- All buildings have wireless access points indoors.
- Outdoor wireless coverage is spotty; there are no dedicated outdoor wireless access points.
This wireless network is recommended for all users. UTC-Secure wireless uses high encryption along with your UTCID and password to secure your communications over the air.
There is a little bit of set up to be done on the device before it will connect, but we provide a helper application.
Try one of the following:
- connect to UTC-Secure-Setup wifi network
- scan QR code on this page
- connect to http://netaccess.utc.edu/secure-wireless/
This wireless network exists only to provide easy access to the setup utility for the UTC-Secure wireless network. Only one website is accessible through this wireless network. Any attempts to browse a website while connected to UTC-Secure-Setup will automatically be redirected to the setup utility. Running this utility will automatically disconnect your device from UTC-Secure-Setup and configure it to reconnect to the UTC-Secure wireless network in the future.
This network is unencrypted and all traffic is sent in plain text unless the service you are using specifically encrypts the traffic on its own (i.e https:// in the address bar). This network supports devices that are unable to use WPA2 Enterprise encrypted wireless networks. It is highly recommended that users avoid the generic UTC wifi network.
Eduroam is a secure, world-wide WiFi service intended for education and research communities. Anyone that is part of a participating institution can connect to and use the eduroam wireless network at any other participating institutions anywhere in the world. We have had local users go as far as Italy and verify that it works. We have had visitors to our campus from other parts of the world including South Africa and it worked for them here. Your computer must be configured to use this network before leaving. Running the UTC-Secure setup utility will perform this setup for you.
