UNO Wireless Networking

The University of New Orleans wireless network is available to students, faculty and staff.  It provides all the conveniences of a regular wired connection without the need for cables. As a shared resource, wireless networking is intended primarily to supplement the campus wired infrastructure, not to replace it.

UNO has two wireless networks: UNOGuest and UNOSecure.

  • UNOSecure is accessible by anyone with a UNO LAN username and password. All faculty, staff, and students have a LAN username and password. Instructions on how to set-up all supported devices, to access UNOSecure, can be found by navigating to Connection Instructions.
  • UNOGuest is for visitors who do not have a UNO LAN credentials. Visitors can request access to the network by having a sponsoring UNO faculty or staff member fill out the UNOGuest Access form. Visitors must have a valid reason for needing UNOGuest access.

Wireless Security at UNO

The wireless network at UNO makes use of a security scheme based on Wi-Fi Protected Access (WPA) that uses a combination of Protected Extensible Authentication Protocol (PEAP) for authentication and Temporal Key Integrity Protocol (TKIP) for encryption.  Configuration of secure wireless settings varies depending on the operating system and the type of wireless adapter. In Windows XP, for instance, you can use Windows to configure your wireless settings, or you can make use of the configuration utility provided with your wireless adapter, as long as this utility has all the requirements to connect to the UNO wireless network.
