New UT Wireless Networks Available, Nomad to be Retired
On Wednesday, Feb. 3, the Office of Information Technology (OIT) will retire “nomad,” the university’s longtime wireless network. In order to continue to access the Internet through UT’s wireless network, you will need to move to one of the new wireless networks, “ut-open” or “ut-wpa2.”
Starting on Tuesday, Jan. 5, OIT will begin reminding wireless Internet users of the upcoming change. On that day, if you are still using the “nomad” network, you will need to open a web browser in order to get connected. At that time, you will be directed to an information page about the wireless changes before continuing to your browser’s homepage.
For more information about these networks and for assistance in connecting to them, visit the OIT Help Desk Knowledge Base, http://oit.utk.edu/helpdesk/kb, or contact the Help Desk at 974-9900.
