AstateSecure Wireless....Some Changes Starting Today

Article ID: 353
Last updated: 10 Oct, 2016
ITS has been working on AstateSecure wireless.... we hope things will be a little easier for you to connect to the secure wireless network. These changes will also allow some people to connect with devices that could not connect before. 
Whenever you need to connect to the wireless network, please now use AstateSecure.
Windows PCs, Macs, iPads, iPhones, and now Androids can all connect to AstateSecure. (These are devices that can use WPA2-Enterprise authentication.) For devices that cannot connect on AstateSecure (or that cannot use WPA2-Enterprise authentication), please continue using AstateAnywhere for the time being.  We are currently working on new options for these devices as well and hope to have them implemented soon.
There is no registration necessary for any just need a student, faculty, or staff username. 
When you go to AstateSecure and you are asked for your username and password, please input only your username (such as jdoe).  Do NOT type ASTATE\ or STUDENTS\....for now on, just your username and password.
Messages that you may get when connecting:
You may get one of the following messages:
On Windows PCs, you may get the following message when you first connect:
Please click “Connect.”  This should only happen the first time. 
On iPads and iPhones, you may get the following message the first time only:
Please click “Accept.”
On Macs, you may receive a message similar to this one and this should only happen the first time:
Please click “Continue.”  Afterwards, it will ask for the username and password for the Mac itself as if you just installed software.
(In our testing, we did not observe Androids giving an error message.)
If you have issues connecting, please contact the ITS Helpdesk at 972-3933. Thank you for your patience and cooperation as we work to improve the technology and services at ASU.
