Wireless Network Connectivity
SAIT Information Systems provides wireless network connectivity on SAIT campuses. Wireless access is free for SAIT students and staff.
SAIT offers two ways to connect to wireless:
- You can set your mobile device up for secure wireless access. This requires a one-time setup and provides quicker access and a more secure connection.
- You can connect to the "sait-open" wireless network. This method requires no setup. Once connected, your web browser will be redirected to a wireless login site where you can enter your account credentials to authenticate to the wireless service. After authentication, you can access the Internet.
We strongly suggest that you set your computer up for secure wireless access.
On Wednesday, Aug. 17, SAIT will be switching exclusively to a new wireless network.
SAIT Information Systems launched a new wireless network in April which replaces old ones in use since 2008. The new wireless network, sait-secure, is easier for end users to set up and provides more security and flexibility for SAIT.
The next step is to remove the old networks. On Wednesday, Aug. 17 at 1:30 pm, Information Systems will turn off sait-admn, sait-acdm-student and sait-acdm-staff wireless networks. After this point, computers and mobile devices set up to use the old networks will not be able to connect to wireless.
Computer systems owned and managed by SAIT have been migrated to the new network. Personal computers and mobile devices will need to be manually switched over to the sait-secure network in order to function on campus.
To avoid connectivity problems after Aug. 17, take the time right now to check your wireless settings and make the switch if necessary.
