New guest Wi-Fi service launching - June 1

Wednesday, May 15, 2019
What is happening? The Net-ID service used for guest Wi-Fi access is being shut down. 
 
When is this happening? Starting Saturday, June 1, Net-ID will no longer be available. 
  
What is the impact to users? Users connected to Eduroam using Net-ID (userid@netid.uwaterloo.ca) will be disconnected. Users can establish an alternate wireless connection using the steps outlined below:
  1. Click and connect to 'uw-wifi-setup-no-encryption' found under your computer's list of available Wi-Fi networks.
  2. In the Join 'uw-wifi-setup-no-encryption' pop-up window, scroll down and select the 'Click here if you are a guest user' option.
  3. Enter your first name, last name, and email address into each respective field. Click 'I Agree' to continue. 
  4. A confirmation code will be sent via email. Enter the code into the pop-up window to connect to the Wi-Fi. There will be a 10-minute window for you to enter the code before the process times out and needs to be restarted.

Note: Wi-Fi access will timeout after 24 hours.
