As part of ongoing efforts to improve the security and accessibility of our campus wireless service, Information Services will be making some significant changes to University of Portland’s Wi-Fi networks. On Wednesday, August 26th at approximately 7 a.m. the Pilots and PilotsWPA Wi-Fi networks will no longer be broadcast.
Going forward the following Service Set Identifiers (SSID’s) will be available:
UPStaff – This SSID can be used by all Faculty and Staff with a valid UP network account.
UPStudent – This SSID can be used by all Students with a valid UP network account. UPStudent supports all wireless devices and gaming consoles
UPGuest – This SSID can be used by parents, visitors and conference guests. Users are allowed to self-register and are no longer required to have a shared password. UPGuest registrations last for 24 hours. After the 24 hour period has expired you will be required to register again.
Joining UP Wireless networks
Apple IOS and Windows devices: Select the Wi-Fi network. A portal web form will appear in your browser requiring you to enter your UP network credentials. Once authenticated your device will be joined to the network.
Android devices: Select the Wi-Fi network. A portal web form will appear requiring you to enter your UP network credentials. Once authenticated your device will be joined to the network. For older Android devices you may have to manually open a browser for the portal web form to open.
Gaming Consoles: Select the Wi-Fi network. Open a browser and navigate to http://www.up.edu. The captive portal should pop up. Enter your UP network credentials. Once authenticated your device will be joined to the network.
You will no longer be required to “Bypass” your devices with the Help Desk. Device associations will expire every 6 months, at which time you will be prompted to re-enter your University network credentials to gain access.
If you experience any issues joining the wireless network please contact the Help Desk at x7000 or firstname.lastname@example.org. For more information about the new wireless networks, please contact Joey Houck, information services, at email@example.com.
