URI is upgrading its wireless security and authentication system this Wednesday 7/12/2017 at 6am until 7am.
The authentication process will be virtually identical to current steps and still utilize your eCampus user name and your Sakai password (URINetID) but will REQUIRE that ALL wireless devices perform a new authentication to the network.
Please visit the URI IT Service Desk homepage for additional information and step by step instructions for all devices, or click the link below.
Included in this new configuration is the ability for staff and faculty to directly sponsor guest access. All users will now have the ability to self register non standard devices such as TV’s, gaming stations, etc via the the self service instructions.
If you encounter difficulties using this new system please contract the URI Help Desk at 874-4357 or via firstname.lastname@example.org.
