Wireless networks available on the UC Davis campus:
eduroamis the wireless network available to all eduroam-enabled accounts. It employs an encrypted authentication protocol called 802.1x and all wireless traffic between your devices and the wireless access point is encrypted. For more information on eduroam, visit eduroam.org. To use an eduroam account from another educational institution, please follow the instructions linked under "How to get started" on how to connect to eduroam with your operating system. For more information, visit the eduroam website at eduroam.org
UCD Guest is the wireless network that is available to all guests of the campus. UCD Guest employs a browser-based captive-portal authentication. This means that there are limitations on "roaming" from one wireless access point to another (you may have to re-authenticate if you change buildings while using UCD Guest) and the wireless traffic between your laptop and the wireless access point is not encrypted.
