  • Give the profile a name, for example "UF wireless network".
  • Select "OK" to close the profile window.
  • Select "Apply" on the Network window to save the changes.
  • To use the network just configured, make sure it is selected from the Network Name selections.
  • If you have not connected to this network before you may need to setup trust for the certificate.


You should now be able to access the 'uf' wireless network. When prompted for login info you should use your Gatorlink username and password to login. If you checked the box in the Security section to remember your credentials then this will happen automatically each time you connect after the initial successful connection attempt. Note that the credentials will have to be re-entered each time you change your password.
