Which devices can I connect to the wireless network?
To work on the university's wireless network restricted.utexas.edu, your device must have a Wi-Fi adapter capable of 802.11g, 802.11a, or 802.11n. 802.11b-only devices are NOT supported. An automated installer is available for many common operating systems.
Most desktops, laptops, tablets, and smartphones with recent versions of Windows, OS X, Linux, iOS, and Android will work on the wireless network. Other devices, such as printers and video game consoles, are generally not compatible with the wireless network, but can be used on the wired network. Some newer devices may be compatible, but advanced technical skills are generally required for setup, and support will be provided on a best-effort basis.
To connect your device to the restricted.utexas.edu, you need:
A device with a Wi-Fi adapter capable of 802.11g, 802.11a, or 802.11n
Note: 802.11b-only devices are not supported
To enable DHCP (Dynamic Host Configuration Protocol) for obtaining IP configuration information
- An operating system and drivers that support:
- 802.1x authentication (also commonly listed as WPA-Enterprise or WPA2-Enterprise)
- WPA2-AES (preferred) or WPA-TKIP
- EAP-PEAPv0 (outer auth)/MSCHAPv2 (inner auth) or EAP-TTLS (outer auth)/MSCHAPv2 (inner auth)
All connections to the campus network, regardless of wired or wireless, must also support the following (all of which are installed and enabled by default on modern operating systems):
- IPv4 (Internet Protocol version 4)
- TCP (Transmission Control Protocol)
- UDP (User Datagram Protocol)
- ICMP (Internet Control Message Protocol)
If your device cannot connect to the wireless network, then try creating an exception form for it.
