Wireless Improvements for Apple Users

We have some exciting news for Apple iOS and OSX users! Our network engineers have heard your feedback and recently released a new wireless utility (Aruba QuickConnect) that prioritizes osuwireless over WiFi@OSU.

So, what does that mean? Now, after using the WiFi@OSU network to configure your devices for osuwireless, the devices will not automatically join WiFi@OSU, allowing you to seamlessly use osuwireless without intermittently bouncing between the two networks.

In order to take advantage of the change, you must be on campus and do one of the following:

a.) associate to WiFi@OSU, open a browser, and select "Secure Network Access"
b.) associate to osuwireless or eduroam and visit go.osu.edu/secure_wifi

We anticipate this to be a huge positive improvement. It will not only eliminate many frustrations of connecting to wireless, but also ensure that all users are using the secure osuwireless network.

If you have any questions regarding this new utility, please contact the IT Service Desk at 614-688-HELP (4357) or 8help@osu.edu.
