Wireless ntu-wifi - Wireless Information

Wi-Fi across the University

The new wireless network (SSID) of ntu-wifi will be available for both staff and students to connect to and this will replace the current ntu-staff, ntu-student and ntu-mobile SSIDs.

Giving our users a single SSID to connect to is part of a host of measures to simplify the wireless service.

This new wireless network is device aware. NTU owned devices (Windows laptops/Macs) will get full access to the network. Non NTU owned and mobile devices will get standard access which can be enhanced using NTUanywhere if required.

New wireless service for NTU

To help simplify the NTU wireless service the number of wireless networks has been reduced. The most significant change is replacing ntu-staff, ntu-student and ntu-mobile with a single SSID: ntu-wifi. This will help to give a consistent message to our users on which network to use when using the wireless, reduce documentation and overall confusion.

Both staff and students will use this network with degrees of access determined by the device connecting. For example, devices that are in the ADS domain (NTU owned staff laptops) will have full access to the network as they do when connected on the wired network. Mobile devices and non-domain devices (staff or student owned laptops) will get equivalent access to ntu-student/ntu-mobile. Staff will be able to enhance this access by using the NTUanywhere client.

    If the new logon procedure creates an individual certificate when you initially sign on, how will this affect the student laptops loaned out on a temporary basis.Will we i.e. library staff need to create the new certificate for the individual laptops as they have their own generic log on Id and password before loaning out to students?
