The NEW standard wifi networks are:

Eduroam for computers and phones.

Nu-IoT for IoT devices. (TVs, gameboxes, etc.)

Nu-guest for non Faculty/Staff/Students and onboarding new people and devices.

These will be the same for the 4 main campuses, UNL, UNK, UNO and the Med Center.

Registering your WIRELESS computer or phone on Eduroam

Connect to the Nu-Guest wifi network. You should be directed to a page that looks like this:

Click the link for eduroam wireless. The network should recognize your device/operating system and show you a page like this:

*example is from an iPhone

  • Enter your username
  • Click 'JoinNow'
  • Your password will be your MyUNL/Canvas/Huskers email password
  • Your device will now prompt you to download an installer/profile and save it to your device.
  • You may need to accept the eduroam certificate, especially on phones.
  • For Macs, iPhones and iPads, you may have to manually move over to eduroam. You may also need to 'forget' NU-Guest network to keep your apple device from auto connecting to there again.
Additional instructions and help links available at Unified Network Overview

Connecting an IoT device to nu-IoT.

You will need to find the wireless MAC address for your IoT device in order to 'create' it for nu-IoT connection.
Once you have that, go to https://its.nebraska.edu/network/iot
Follow the instructions there, this will create your IoT device registration and give you the password to log it onto nu-IoT.
The IoT device creation is good for one year.
You can manage/edit your IoT device yourself, based on your login, whenever needed.
