New "kumc-guest" Wireless

To increase wireless (WiFi) security for the KUMC community, Information Resources has launched a new guest wireless network. The name of the wireless guest network is simply "kumc-guest". Use of this network will require a brief registration process before University visitors and guests can gain access to the internet and other public KUMC resources.

KUMC employees and students are encouraged to use the secure wireless network called "kumc-secure".

Information Resources has recently updated the wireless networking web site to include more instructions and documentation on how to connect devices to the secure wireless network. That web site can be found here.

Over time, the current unsecured or guest wireless network with the name "Internet" will be phased out.

Please contact the Customer Support Helpdesk at 8-7995 should you have any questions or require more information about how to connect to the secure wireless network.
