Connect to the Wireless Network with Mac OS
The UNCG wireless portal page provides a visitor services login, in addition to a web link for Cloudpath, which performs automatic, secure wireless configuration. The Cloudpath solution will configure a workstation for the eduroam SSID to be used for high performance broadband ISP-style service, and optimized for seamless student service across campus.
- Cloudpath does not provide configuration services for faculty and staff use of the General Computing Network (GCN). For instructions on connecting to the secure internal GCN wireless, see: Connect to the GCN-Wireless Network with Mac OS.
- If you are unable to reconfigure your wireless settings using Cloudpath, see: Connect to the Wireless Network with Mac OS (Manual Setup).
- If you have questions, please visit the 6-TECH Service Center in the McNutt Building or contact 6-TECH at (336) 256-TECH (8324).
