The UA Wireless System consists of four Service Set Identifiers (SSIDs): UAWiFi, UAGuest, UAPublic, and UAWireless. SSIDs appear in a machine's wireless utility and is a way to group wireless network users based on available specified services. Users will need to select an SSID in order to connect to the UA Wireless System. Below is a description of the four available SSIDs on the UA Wireless System.
UAWiFi is the new wireless SSID available for University Students, Faculty, and Staff. The use of this SSID requires a NetID, compliance with the NAC, and registration. This SSID provides users with full network bandwidth.
UAGuest is the SSID available for guests of the University who are assigned a temporary login. For example, employers or vendors are considered guests of the University. UAGuest users are routed off the campus network but can still access the Internet with full bandwidth capabilities.
The UAPublic SSID is to be used by people who do not have a NetID or a temporary UA login. This SSID will function on a lower bandwidth and have a limited number of ports available, meaning there are less connections to this SSID. UAPublic users are routed off the campus network and only have access to basic functions, such as viewing the Internet and receiving email.
This SSID is the name of the old campus wireless network. It still remains to provide service to various locations throughout campus until it is replaced by UAWiFi.
Information for configuring your laptop for wireless on the UAWiFi can be found at the OSCR website http://oscr.arizona.edu/wireless
