Disclaimer:

OIT support of mobile wireless connectivity is limited to this how-to document. Agents, technicians, and administrators are not trained in the support of these products. These instructions are provided to assist our UTA community, and we thank the Android volunteers who helped us collect this information. Please provide additional feedback that you think may help other users with their wireless connections.

How to Use:

Here are the instructions for setting up the UTA Auto Login wi-fi network on an Android OS device.  Once it's set up, this wi-fi connection will automatically connect for you whenever you're in range of the network.
Setup using the "UTAwireless Setup" wi-fi network:
  1. Open your device's wi-fi settings.
  2. Choose the UTA Wireless Setup wi-fi network.
  3. Open your browser after the connection is made to be directed to the XpressConnect setup page.  If it doesn't open immediately, try to open a different website and you should be redirected to it.
  4. Check the box to accept the EULA terms and tap "Start".
  5. Choose to download the setup tool using the Direct Download option.
  6. To install the XpressConnect tool, you'll have to allow installation of apps from unkown sources in your device's security settings.
  7. Run the XpressConnect tool and choose to set up the UTA Auto Login wi-fi network.
  8. Enter your NetID and password when asked.
  9. Your device should connect to the wi-fi network and your browser will be directed to the UTA Acceptable Usage Policy website.  You may browse to any page desired from this point.

Setup without using the "UTAwireless Setup" wi-fi network:

  1. Choose the UTA Auto Login network in your list of wi-fi networks to bring up the settings box for it.
  2. Set PEAP and MSCHAPv2 for the authentication settings.
  3. Enter your NetID for your identity and then your password.  Leave the "anonymous identity" box blank.
  4. Verify that the certificate options are not used.
  5. Tap the "connect" button and your wi-fi connection should be established.
