Select uie-uofi from the list of available wireless networks.



You should be prompted for a user name and password. Enter your NetID and login password and tap “Join”.

NOTE: If you are not prompted for a user name and password, repeat the steps for forgetting a network that we used for uie-guest for uie-uofi



Once user name and password have been entered successfully you will be presented with a certificate dialog. Tap trust in the top right corner to continue.




uie-uofi should now show a check mark indicating that it is the connected wi-fi network.



Android Devices

Unfortunately there are many different versions of Android and most manufacturers use their own customized version that can change how things look in settings. This document will give general instructions for an average Android device. Screen shots are from a Samsung Galaxy Note 5.

Locate the settings app on your Android device and launch it. This can usually be found in the general apps tray or by opening the notifications bar at the top of the screen and tapping the gear icon.

Once you have opened the settings app, select Wi-Fi



If you are already connecting to uie-guest, tap uie-guest and



Then tap “forget”



Now select the uie-uofi network to begin connecting to it.



Confirm the following settings are selected and fill in your NetID and login password.

EAP Method: PEAP
Phase 2 Authentication: MSCHAPV2
CA Certificate: None or Unpsecified
Identity: Your NetID
Password: Your NetID Password
select Auto Reconnect

Some versions do not have “unspecified” as an option. Try “do not validate” if it is an available option. 

For Pixel users: CA Certificate can be greyed out. You may also see "Domain" as a field.  Please put in illinois.edu and for your "Identity" put in your entire email address.  


Some Android versions may have different options for some of these settings. If you are unsure of what to select here contact Extension IT for assistance.

If settings are successful uie-uofi will show connected.
