Wireless Network Changes

 Permanent link


Technology Services is making changes to the Samford wireless network. Beginning Tuesday July 24, 2012 users will begin to see two new networks when connecting to the wireless system:


  • Samford Users (New Network) - This will replace SamfordWPA2 and is the network that all faculty, staff, and students should use.
  • Samford Guests (New Network) - This network will allow Internet-only access to guests. Each guest is able to sign up for temporary account and will immediately receive their login information by text message to their phone. The Wireless sponsorship form will continue to be used for events needing a single login account.


On July 24, 2012 the following wireless networks will be hidden:


  • SamfordSecure
  • SamfordWPA2
  • NoInternet SU Only


If you are connected to one of the above networks please disconnect and reconnect to Samford Users. The above networks will continue to operate as hidden networks until Tuesday December 18th, 2012.

Please contact the Technology Services help desk at 726-2662 or if you need assistance reconnecting to Samford Users or have any questions concerning this project.
