    UWLOpen grants internet access to anyone on campus. After connecting to UWLOpen you will need to open a web browser and accept the agreement before continuing to the internet.

    Students, Faculty, & Staff (UWLSecure/EagleNet)

    The preferred network for students, faculty, and staff with a UW-L NetID.

    • UWLSecure is faster than UWLOpen.
    • UWLSecure encrypts all network traffic to provide a safer network experience. 
    • UWLSecure provides a persistent connection to the internet and does not require you to accept an agreement each time it is used.

    To use UWLSecure:

    1. Select UWLSecure from the list of availalble wireless networks 
    2. Open a web browser and try to visit any website 
    3. When prompted, login with your UW-L NetID 
    4. Follow the on-screen instructions to run the tool that configures your connection

    After you have connected through UWLSecure you will be moved to a network named EAGLENET. This is normal and expected. If your connection is not automatically moved please select EAGLENET manually. This will provide you with the best wireless service on campus.
