WiFi (Blazer WiFi / UAB WiFi)

  There are 2 options for UAB WiFi now:
  • UABStartHere is an open network, which provides no encryption.  (Users will not need to enter a WEP key.)
  • UABSecure is the preferred (WiFi) network for users with a BlazerID because it provides encryption for sensitive data

Effective July 31, 2014 UABStartHere and UABSecure replaced the existing networks — uabwifi, uabwifi-nac and uabvisitor.


Guest WiFi

Guests will no longer require sponsored access to use the campus WiFi network. They only need to log on to UABStartHere using a valid email address to get 24 hours of access to the WiFi network.
