Wireless devices at VUMC need to use vuNet Wireless Network by Monday, Dec. 16

Attention Medical Center Wireless Users: Your wireless device may stop working Monday, Dec. 16, if you have not moved to the vuNet Wireless Network.

On Monday, Dec. 16, VUIT will decommission the PatientCare1 wireless network. Users are urged to move their wireless devices (iPhones, iPads, laptops, desktops, Android phones, printers, etc.) from PatientCare1 to vuNet now. vuNET is the new secure SSID available for Vanderbilt authenticated wireless users.

Most devices will easily migrate to vuNet. However, devices that only support WEP authentication, will need to migrate to the vuLegacy wireless SSID. Submit a Pegasus ticket to request access to vuLegacy titled “Request vuDevice/vuLegacy Access.”

Directions for configuring many common devices can be found here:

• Login using your VUnetID and ePassword
• Click “I’m a Student, staff or faculty of VUMC”
• Click “Help Me connect my device to vuNet”
• Select your devices operating system for instructions

If you require additional assistance configuring your device, contact your departmental LAN Manager or the VUIT Help Desk at 3-HELP (343-4357).
