WPA No More: tamulink-wpa is now TAMU_WiFi

The Division of Information Technology will change the name and SSID of Texas A&M's wireless internet from tamulink-wpa to TAMU_WiFi on May 13. The old name is outdated and many were confused by the term "WPA." The new name mirrors the name of our other wireless option (TAMU_Visitor).

On May 13, you will see the option to connect to TAMU_WiFi from your wireless devices. Once selected, you will log in with your NetID and password as usual. You can continue using tamulink-wpa through June 13 as both options will remain available.

Eduroam will not be affected by this change and will remain a wireless option.

For help connecting to the new TAMU WiFi, view step-by-step instructions.

If you have questions or need further assistance, please contact Help Desk Central at 979.845.8300 or email helpdesk@tamu.edu.
