(network) Wireless Access Changes

Beginning with the new wireless access service expansion this summer, the way in which you use wireless Internet access on campus is changing. To receive wireless network access, you only have to register your University PID for access, rather than your computers network card.

Accessing the Network

  1. Make sure you are receiving a wireless signal by verifying that a signal icon is present on the taskbar and is showing a signal.
  2. After confirming a signal is present and active, browse to any website (e.g. www.vt.edu). You will be redirected to a network confirmation screen.
  3. Enter your PID and password, then press "Login".
  4. Once the system acknowledges you are eligible to use the wireless network, you may use the service.
