Configure UOW Students for Android

Tap the Settings button on the main screen of the device, or from within the Main Menu of your device. Please note that the screenshots below may not match as each android device is different. However the setup steps will be the same for all Android devices.

android settings

The Wi-Fi menu should come up automatically, otherwise select it and tap the UOW Students entry:

choose network

Set the options to be like this (below), and the Identity to be your username@waikato.ac.nz. If you do not include the @waikato.ac.nz the wireless will fail to authenticate and you will not be logged in

android options

Set the password to be your Waikato University password. Tap the Connect button to connect.

android authenticate

Wi-Fi should say that it is connecting to UOW Students. If it goes back to scanning you've either entered the wrong username or wrong password.

The device should then acquire an IP address from the UOW Students network and show that it is connected.

android connected

Tapping on the UOW Students brings up the details about the connection, useful for diagnosing problems when talking to the Service Desk.
