The New Mexico Tech Wireless Network serves wireless access services in all major academic locations and some of the open areas around campus.
Available Wireless Networks
There are three available wireless networks available in all locations:
It is unencrypted and accidental data exposure over this network can happen more easily (say if you forget to use encryption on your own).
It doesn't roam. When you move from radio to radio, you must re-authenticate.
It won't remember your connection settings and you'll need to login each time you use it.
This network still provides a fully encrypted connection from start to finish. It allows for roaming and the credentials can be saved for nearly seamless access.
WARNING: No other network is supported by ISD and you should never give out your credentials to them.
Currently guest access is limited to sponsored guests. Any department can sponsor guests by setting up a sponsored guest account with the Information Services Department (ISD).
Currently the only departments that are set up to deliver guest access are the New Mexico Tech Library, ISD and Macey.
Upon logging in a Pop-Up window will appear that you can be left in the back-ground. When you wish to logout click the link in the Pop-Up window.
If Pop-Ups are blocked there will be a URL on the authorization screen that will allow you to log out (of this particular session), and a "browse to" link that points to the location to which you were originally navigating. You can save the WebAAA link to logout later.
If that window gets closed or you just want to manually logout of the wireless system, then navigate to: https://wl-ctrl-1.nmt.edu/logout.html
