Most wireless devices will be able to auto-detect the PAWS-Secure and "Welcome to UGA" wireless networks. It will display as PAWS-Secure or "Welcome to UGA" in your list of available wireless networks.
PAWS-Secure encrypts data sent between a computer, phone or tablet connected to a wireless access point. PAWS-Secure, which requires just a one-time registration, is the preferred wireless network for UGA.
In order to access PAWS-Secure, you will need a valid University of Georgia MyID and password. If you are eligible for a MyID and have not obtained one, go here to request a MyID. If you are a visitor to UGA and ineligible for a MyID, please contact the EITS Help Desk for assistance.
There are numerous other devices which have support for WPA-2 Enterprise connections (the type of wireless standard PAWS-Secure uses), but often you have to manually enter the configuration information. If you have a device that is not listed above, you can try setting it up with the configuration information below:
Authentication/EAP type: PEAP
Phase 2 authentication: MSCHAPV2
Identity: your MyID username
Password: your MyID password
You may also need to install a trust certificate for this network to work. We use the AddTrust External CA Root certificate.
