Our new Tech Tips series is designed to help students, faculty, staff and researchers quickly learn new and useful tech tips.
This, we’re showing you how to connect to the UNC WiFi network. We are using an iPhone for illustration purposes, but rest assured we have step-by-step instructions for different devices and operating systems available here.
Step #1: Go to the Home screen and touch Settings.
Step #2: Touch Wi-Fi.
Step #3: If your Wi-Fi setting displays Off place your finger on the switch and slide it to the right to switch it to On.
If you’re on-campus connect to the Wireless Network called “UNC-Setup” or if you’re off-campus use the cellular connection or another WiFi connection. Then point your web browser to https://uncsecure.net.unc.edu and follow the prompts. Note that you may need to be on the latest version of Apple iOS for your iDevice. You will need to redo this last step each year to get a new certificate.
You should now be automatically connected to the UNC-Secure wireless network now. If you are unable to connect to either of the networks mentioned above, you can attempt to reset your networking settings by choosing Settings > General > Reset > Reset Network Settings.
