UNT offers several methods of connecting to our wireless network (source).
The UNT network offers two main benefits over Eaglenet. First, the UNT network has increased security providing encryption. Second, it avoids going through a log-in portal to access the wireless network.
Eduroam allows UNT students, faculty, and staff to connect to wireless networks at other participating Universities using UNT Credentials. While you may see the Eduroam network name on campus, it is recommended that UNT students, faculty, and staff use either the Eaglenet or UNT SSID.
Set-up Instructions and Additional Information
The UIT Helpdesk will support UNT students, faculty, and staff with access to Eduroam. We advice you verify Eduroam connectivity before leaving UNT and traveling to a participating University. If you are visiting UNT from another University, your first point of contact will be your University's Helpdesk.
The UIT Helpdesk will help unt students, faculty, and staff connect to the wireless network on non-UNT computers. If you are a faculty or staff member having difficulty connecting to wireless on a UNT owned device we do recommend
you first contact your Distributed Support Group (Netman).
The UIT Helpdesk can provide limited support in connecting your device to the EagleNet or UNT wireless system. If it is determined that the nature of the issue is beyond our support capabilites, the Helpdesk may refer users to a professional computer support company, as we do not provide personal computer support.
Eaglenet, the wireless network at UNT is brought to you by the University of North Texas Information Technology System Services (ITSS). Eaglenet is available in almost every building on the Denton Campus and in all areas of Discovery Park. Eaglenet currently supports the wireless IEEE 802.11n standard that allows you to connect your wireless network equipped laptop or other device to the network without cumbersome cables or wires. The 802.11n standard has the capablity of speeds of 100 Mbps plus. Your actual speed and system throughput will vary depending on your location in a building, the number of other people using the network, and the type of equipment you are using.
