Connecting to UO Secure Wireless Network


How can I connect to the UO Secure network? What are the differences between UO Secure and the uowireless network?


What's the difference between uowireless and UO Secure?
UO Secure offers the following advantages:

  • No more daily logins! Log in once with your Duck ID and password when you set up UO Secure on your device, then only twice a year when you change your password. (With uowireless network you will need to log in every time you wish to use wireless.)
  • Data sent across the wireless network is encrypted (using WPA2), and that reduces the chance someone will intercept usernames, passwords, and other confidential data.
  • More efficient wireless connections: the technology behind UO Secure allows us to provide a more efficient network configuration.
