GTwifi is the preferred wireless connection for Georgia Tech students and faculty. Most modern computers that are capable of WPA2 Enterprise authentication should be compatible. GTwifi uses a much more secure method of data encryption and does not require you to log in after each connection as with GTother.
Connecting to GTwifi is extremely easy on most newer machines and operating systems. If your device doesn't support WPA2 Enterprise authentication, you will not be able to connect to GTwifi, and you will need to connect to GTother instead.
- Ensure that wireless is enabled on your device.
- Find the wireless internet settings for your device. This usually takes the form of an icon in your device's taskbar. In Windows, it is usually located in the in the lower right, and on a Mac it is usually located in the upper right. Both icons appear as signal bars.
- If applicable, tell your device to scan for wireless networks.
- On the list of networks that appears, choose GTwifi.
- If this is your first time connecting to GTwifi, or if you recently changed your password, a dialog box will appear prompting you for your GT username and password. Enter both and click OK, Connect, Accept or similar option to continue.
- If a warning window appears on your screen, click the Connect Anyway or similar option.
- You should now have internet access.
