Wireless Connectivity

For ResLife Students:  Click here for an FAQ on the ResLife Network

The university wireless network is available to all ULM students, faculty, and staff. It provides all the conveniences of a regular wired connection without the need for cables.

The ULM wireless network is based on the IEEE 802.11a/ac/g/n standard, which operates in the 2.4GHz / 5.8Ghz license-free frequency band. It offers wireless data connections at speeds of up to 150Mbps.

Getting Connected

Settings needed to set up wireless access

In order to be able to connect to the wireless network you will need to have the following items and settings:

802.11(g/n/a/ac) compliant wireless card
SSID: ULMFaculty, ULMStudent, ULMGuest
TCP/IP settings: DHCP 

SSID: ULMFaculty, ULMStudent

This network is for the faculty/staff or students on our campus.  These give you access to most of the same resources that wired computers have. You will only have to logging once per device and will stay logged in as long as you don't have your ULM account password. 

SSID: ULMGuest

This network is for people visiting the ULM campus and need to access the internet. It will only allow http and https connections.  All other services are disabled for security purposes. This network requires that you register with a valid email address or password to use. This access is only good for 1 day and then you have to re-register after.

TCP/IP settings: DHCP

There are two ways of assigning an IP address to a network adapter: static or DHCP. Static assignment requires the use of a unique IP address that will only work on a particular subnet and must be entered manually. DHCP (Dynamic Host Configuration Protocol) on the other hand, refers to the automatic assignment of an IP address. No user intervention is required. The only thing the user is responsible for is to set the TCP/IP settings on the network adapter to DHCP.

Login Type: 802.1x

There are multiple ways to log in to a wireless service. At ULM, we use the 802.1x method that uses your faculty/student account to log in to the wireless service. When logging in, please only use your username. Do not use the @ulm.edu or @warhawks.ulm.edu as they will fail.

Once you are logged in, you should not have to change or re-login again unless you change your password to your faculty/student account.

iOS Notes:

When connecting with an iOS device, it might complain about a certificate. You just have to hit "Trust" in the upper right hand side and it will allow the login to finish.

Android Notes:

When you connect with your Android device, please make sure it says the following:

Security: 802.1x EAP
EAP method: PEAP
Phase 2 authentication: MSCHAPV2
CA certificate: (Unspecified)
Identity: Your username
Anonymous identity: BLANK
Enter Password: Your password

Windows 10 Notes:

With Windows 10, you will have to make sure you complete the steps located here.
