Most desktop and notebook computers, tablets, and smartphones running recent versions of Windows, Apple OS X and iOS, Linux, and Android are able to connect to the utexas wireless network. Other devices, gaming consoles and wireless printers, may not support the 802.1x authentication protocols used on utexas and should be registered on utexas-iot instead.

 

To connect to utexas, the device must have:

  • A Wi-Fi adapter that supports 802.11g, 802.11a, 802.11n, or 802.11ac
  • DHCP (Dynamic Host Configuration Protocol) enabled, for obtaining IP configuration information
  • An operating system and wireless drivers that support:
    • 802.1x authentication (aka. "WPA2 Enterprise")
    • EAP-PEAPv0 (outer auth)/MSCHAPv2 (inner auth) or EAP-TTLS (outer auth)/MSCHAPv2 (inner auth)

 

To connect to utexas-iot, the device must have:

  • A Wi-Fi adapter that supports 802.11g, 802.11a, 802.11n, or 802.11ac
  • DHCP (Dynamic Host Configuration Protocol) enabled, for obtaining IP configuration information
  • An operating system and wireless drivers that supports WPA2-PSK (aka. "WPA2 Personal")

 

All connections to the campus network, must also support the following technologies (all of which are installed and enabled by default on modern operating systems):

  • IPv4 (Internet Protocol version 4)
  • TCP (Transmission Control Protocol)
  • UDP (User Datagram Protocol)
  • ICMP (Internet Control Message Protocol)
