uw-wireless to be renamed uw-unsecured on March 1

We will not be phasing out the insecure wireless Service Set Identifier (SSID) completely on March 1. Rather, it will be renamed to "uw-unsecured". Approximately 85% of Waterloo’s wireless services have migrated to the secure Eduroam network. However, some older laptops, and other devices, have difficulty with the security settings required to use Eduroam.
