IU Secure gets a boost at IU Bloomington and IUPUI
You use Wi-Fi for a lot of things -- researching papers, streaming movies, and playing video games. Thanks to a major wireless upgrade at IU Bloomington and IUPUI, all of this just got much easier.
Combined, both campuses now have over 5,000 wireless access points, meaning you should be able to connect to the Internet from almost anywhere. The upgrade also allows UITS to be proactive with Wi-Fi improvements instead of reactive. In other words, we’re now able to stay ahead of problems instead of trying to keep up with them.
Need to connect your PS3, Roku, or other device to Wi-Fi? Check out IU DeviceNet, a new wireless network for gaming and media devices.
The network is available in all IU Bloomington and IUPUI residence halls and campus apartments.
Since DeviceNet is unencrypted, you should only use it for gaming consoles and media devices. For everything else, use IU Secure.
Get started at:
When connecting, be sure to use the IU Secure network and not ATTWIFI. IU Secure offers a much higher level of protection for your personal information and systems. There are times when your device may default to ATTWIFI.
If this happens and you can't fix it, please contact the UITS Support Center.
Possible connection issues
Having trouble connecting or staying connected? There are three likely culprits:
- Coverage: Are you getting a signal? If you aren't, let us know. We want to cover as much of campus as
- Connectivity: Having problems connecting to a network? Make sure your username and password are correct.
If you're using a PC, also make sure your wireless driver is current (and update it if needed).
- Capacity: Is the Internet unusually slow? Look around to see if a lot of people are using wireless devices.
If you report the issue, we may be able to move or add access points to beef up coverage.
Help UITS improve IU Secure
UITS has made a huge effort to make sure there aren't gaps in coverage, but no system is perfect. If you have trouble connecting to or using IU Secure, please contact the UITS Support Center – and tell the consultant what problem you're having and where you're having it.
Consultants are available 24/7 via phone, email, or live chat, so you shouldn't have any trouble getting in touch. With your help, we'll work out the kinks and continue to improve wireless access on each campus.
