Eaglenet Wireless Network Update
By Joe Adamo, Director of Communications Services
We reported in September, that Eaglenet Wireless Networking had come to UNT. For the last eight months the Computing and Information Technology Center has been busy installing the "Eaglenet Wireless Network" on the UNT campus. That network is now available for your use.
Eaglenet allows students, faculty, and staff to use their current
EUID's and passwords to access the Internet from a laptop or
personal digital assistant (PDA) equipped with an 802.11b wireless
interface. To access and use Eaglenet, simply configure your wireless
device with "Eaglenet" as the SSID, turn off WEP encryption, and connect
to the network (these arcane instructions are described in more detail
on the Website referenced later.) Once you've established a wireless
connection to Eaglenet, open a web browser and you'll be directed to the
Eaglenet logon page. At this point enter your EUID and password and
you're on your way to surfing the web.
Where is Eaglenet installed?
Eaglenet is installed in high traffic areas across campus, i.e. the Willis Library, the Union, etc., to serve the largest numbers of students, faculty and staff. The wireless web page at www.UNT.edu/wireless has a complete listing of where Eaglenet is available as well as a link to frequently asked questions (FAQs) about Eaglenet and how it operates.
