Do you use Griffith Wi-Fi? Update your device to stay connected!

We understand the importance of Wi-Fi in daily life. We also want to ensure total online safety of our students here at Griffith University. So, from Thursday 29 August, security improvements to the Griffith Wi-Fi network will be available to all staff and students.

If you have a mobile phone, tablet, Mac, Linux or non-Griffith Wi-Fi device, you will need to manually update your Wi-Fi connection by following our Getting Connected guides. The setup process will only take a couple of minutes per device and can be done at a time that is convenient for you from 29 August to 19 October 2019. After this date, you must update your device(s), or you will lose Wi-Fi connection until you update to the secure Wi-Fi settings.

Staff with a Griffith Windows laptop or Windows surface device will need to shut down and restart their device while connected to the wired network. The new Wi-Fi settings will be automatically updated as part of the standard software installation.

Why Change?

Wi-Fi networks can be compromised and used to collect your log in details for malicious activities. To prevent this from happening to our Griffith Wi-Fi network, we have improved the way you connect your device.

Come and see us!

We will be out and about over the next few weeks promoting the change.
