Once your device is configured properly you will be able to connect to the UCF_WPA2 wireless network with your UCF NID as a username, and UCF NID password.

If you are a student or employee at UCF, you should try to configure the settings on your laptop computer or handheld device so that it will connect to the UCF_WPA2 campus network. You only need to adjust these settings once.

Instructions are available online from UCF Computer Services & Telecommunications for Windows (Windows 7, Windows Vista, Windows XP), MAC OSX, Linux, and Mobile (Android, iPhone, iPad, iPod Touch, Blackberry)

If you are using another system or handheld device, consult the instruction manual that came with your wireless device for how to configure the settings appropriately.

If you are a guest, you should connect to "UCF_Guest" for wireless service. Once you are connected on the "UCF_Guest" network open a web browser, read UCF's Acceptable Use policy and click accept at the bottom of the page.
