iPhone on AirWes


For those of you iPhoners out there, it seems that ITS has updated its network to allow iPhones access to wireless. All you have to do is connect to AirWes, and open a safari page, where you’ll be redirected to login using clean access. The only problem is that if you move to a different location on campus, or don’t have your iPhone on for a while, it’ll make you login again, and if you’re not logged in and try to use some internet application besides Safari (maps, weather, youtube), it’ll just sit there and wait for the WiFi connection to work, which it won’t, and not activate EDGE.

    This is handy, but do you know if it works for multiple iPhones? I have four or five (I can’t remember) and I don’t want to have to keep fiddling with all of them.

    It seems for all intents and purposes Clean Access treats the iPhone much as it would a Mac laptop, since iPhones “got fixed” right when the requirement for the Clean Access client was lifted for macs. It’s behaving as intended, too, since the powers that be want you to authenticate on every “new” connection ;)I do have to say that these web-based authentication systems have been a long time personal gripe of mine. I can’t even begin to count the number of times I tried to check my email or get you know, work done, only to get stymied by a non functioning network. It’s vaguely irritating since I don’t necessarily think to open a web browser the minute I sit down at my computer.In regards to the Wii, there’s currently no (automated) method for getting wireless game consoles access. There seem to be two options, the best one is to jot down the hardware address and send it to HelpDesk who sends it to a mysteriously cloaked figure on the 5th floor, who adds your device as a special exception. The second is to try the old hardware address spoofing trick.

    Yeah, iPhones on campus? Not at this school! We hate Apple products, and it’s one of the most expensive institutions of higher education in the world! Who could possibly afford an iPhone?!?!C’mon folks, use your noggins. Of course there are rich kids with fancy toys on campus. You may even know one yourself.
