ICAirnet-Secure

ICAirnet-Secure is the recommended wireless network for faculty and staff (including affiliates). A valid Netpass username and password are required for authentication to ICAirnet-Secure. This network is available in all academic and administrative areas and provides a secure, encrypted connection. Windows computers require one or more configuration files be installed the first time the connection is made.

Note: Windows 64-bit operating systems are not able to connect to ICAirnet-Secure at this time (these computers CAN connect to ICAirnet, the unsecure wireless network).
