Which devices can I connect to the wireless network?
Most desktop and notebook computers, tablets, and smartphones running recent versions of Windows, Apple OS X and iOS, Linux, and Android are able to connect to the wireless network. Other devices, gaming consoles and wireless printers, may not support the necessary requirements; check with the devices manufacturer or available documentation for more information.
To connect to restricted.utexas.edu, the device must have:
A Wi-Fi adapter that supports 802.11g, 802.11a, or 802.11n signals
Note: 802.11b-only devices are not supported.
DHCP (Dynamic Host Configuration Protocol) enabled, for obtaining IP configuration information
- An operating system and wireless drivers that support:
- 802.1x authentication (also commonly called 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, must also support the following technologies (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 does not support these technologies, you may consider connecting to the AT&T
Wi-Fi Network (attwifi).
