Wireless Network (WiFi)
Wireless Services Minimal System Requirements
Wireless internet access is available at all UAA campuses. There are three options available on the wireless network.
Residence Hall Network
All UAA residence halls are equipped with high speed internet connections to support your academic and personal life. Most residence halls have a wall outlet you can plug in to. MAC residence halls have high speed DSL connections.
Wired network access is available in offices, classrooms, and residence halls. Many network outlets are already active and configured to automatically connect your computer to the internet (DHCP). Some employees will have special needs that require manual configuration (static IP address).
Accessing UAA from Off Campus (VPN)
For security reasons, many technology resources are not available on the public internet. This includes file shares, software checkout, and some web applications. Employees can setup the virtual private network (VPN) software on their computer to be able to work from home. Connecting via VPN is equivalent to being on campus; though maybe slower depending on your internet connection speed.
Note: Your browser will need to have ActiveX enabled and Java installed to download and run the VPN client.
The AnyConnect client is also available for most mobile devices on your devices store/marketplace.
The following information will need to be updated on the connection once the app has been downloaded.
