Authentication VS Registration

  1. Authentication is the process of proving your identity when connecting to NEIT’s network. NEIT-Secure is the only network which requires a user to authenticate upon connection.
  2. Registration is the process of associating your devices with your user account. Registration is required on all wireless networks and in the Meltzer Residence Hall. Devices must only be registered once.

Choosing a Wireless Network

Faculty/Staff – Faculty/Staff are required to connect their BYOD computers and mobile devices to NEIT-Secure.  Faculty/staff BYOD computers and mobile devices connected to NEIT-Guest will be placed in a dead-end network.

Students – Students may choose between either network depending on which level of wireless encryption and authentication they wish to participate in.
