Connecting to UO Secure Wireless Network

Question

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

Solution

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.

Configuring your device for UO Secure
The following explains how to set up your device to use UO Secure the first time.

  1. Connect to the "UO WiFi Setup" network.
  2. This should automatically open a window in your default web browser. If it does not, open your web browser and navigate to https://cloud.securew2.com/public/49980/UO_Secure/
  3. Click on the "Join Now" button, this will download an installer.
  4. Run the installer.
  5. Enter your DuckID (first part of your @uoregon.edu email) and password, then hit "Next". Once the program completes, you should be authenticated for UO Secure.
  6. The program will automatically connect you to UO Secure. If it doesn't, select the WiFi icon on your top bar once more, and try reconnecting to UO Secure, it should allow you on the network now.

System Requirements

The software used to set up UO Secure runs on Windows 7, 8.1 and 10 and Mac OS X 10.8 and later. Supported mobile devices are iOS 4 and later or Android 4.1 and later.
