Connecting to our wireless network through Windows is easy with your UIC NetID and password. Windows 8 requires no external software, it's just a simple login. For Windows XP / Vista / 7, we have a UIC-WiFi Installer that can be downloaded and used to automatically configure your connection. We also have manual instructions at the bottom for people who would prefer to do that.

These instructions apply to Microsoft Outlook 2007 and 2010. To set up an auto reply message from a shared mailbox, you will need to create a second Outlook profile that connects only to the shared mailbox.

Important note: iPod touch and iPad devices need an existing network connection to download and install the UIC-WiFi profile. You do not have to be connected to UIC-WiFi to download and install the profile, but you do have to be connected to the Internet. Please use another wireless connection (at home, coffee shop).

Having a fast Internet connection that's "always on" when you want to surf the Web is great for you, but it's also great for hackers from around the world who sweep through thousands of random IP addresses looking for computers that they can exploit. And what they can do is really quite scary.
