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.

Accessing Eaglenet

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.

If you need more help accessing Eaglenet, check out the CITC's wireless Webpage at, where you'll find information on various wireless cards that will work with Eaglenet and information on how to configure your laptop or wireless device to work with Eaglenet. Although the CITC's helpdesk staff (at 565-2324) can't work on your personal equipment, they are available to answer your questions and help you through the wireless set-up process.

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 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.
