Available Wi-Fi Networks

We have added four new Wi-Fi Networks to replace the TAMUC network.

LionNet-Managed, LionNet, LionNet-Guest and Eduroam

A brief explanation of the different networks:

The LionNet-Managed network is for domain managed devices only and your university issued laptop will automatically connect to the network when it is range.

The LionNet network is for students, faculty and staff who bring their own personal device i.e. phone, tablet, laptop. When you connect to this network for the first time it will ask you to login. You will need to use the same credentials that you use to login to any campus managed computer or your MyLeo Account.

The LionNet-Guest network is intended for campus visitors that do not have a login account with the university i.e. Parents of students, friends and contractors. To use this network will need to provide an email address and unique password for accessing this wireless service. It can be a Gmail, Yahoo or other email account.

The Eduroam is a globally recognized Wi-Fi network for university systems. It allows for students or faculty from one university to use their guest institutions Wi-Fi with their host institution credentials. Any current enrolled student or faculty/staff member can use this network by entering their username in this format: Username@tamuc.edu where “Username” and the password is the same username and password you use to login to any campus managed computer or your MyLeo Account. Android devices require you to install a certificate on your device to encrypt, while the iOS devices will download the certificate but simply ask you to confirm the authenticity. You can download the certificate. If you experience difficulties, please contact the CITE helpdesk and they will walk you through the process.

If your department currently has any digital signage or other types of devices that use the Wi-Fi i.e. WePresent, Brightsign. Please contact the Networking Team at extension 6000 and we will work with you to transition your devices to the new network.

If you have any questions or concerns regarding the new Wi-Fi networks please contact the IT helpdesk at 903-468-6000 or by email helpdesk@tamuc.edu
