Starting Tuesday, ITC has set up a new way for guests to access the U.Va. wireless network.
It’s much like the system found in hotels: The guests will need a passcode, which must be generated by a U.Va. sponor.
The sponsor first goes to a page to generate the passcode. The sponsor specifies how long the code will be needed – either one or seven days – and the code is automatically generated.
When guests connect to the “Welcome_to_UVa_Wireless” wireless network and open a Web browser, they will be automatically redirected to the network setup page. Following the guest path from there takes them to a page where they will be prompted to enter their passcodes to gain Internet access.
Guests will need to keep their passcodes handy, as they will need to use them every time they connect to the “Welcome_to_UVa_Wireless” wireless network.
