VMI has high-speed wireless networks available on-Post to allow access to the VMI network and the Internet. Wireless technology gives users the freedom to access the Internet and network resources without the limitations of being physically connected to the network infrastructure via wires.
VMI offers two separate wireless networks: "VMI-Guest" and "eduroam". VMI-Guest is open to the public and visitors. The eduroam network provides secure and encrypted wireless access and requires an active VMI domain account/VMI login credentials to access. An additional benefit of eduroam is that it allows VMI faculty, staff, and cadets to securely connect to wireless networks at participating institutions around the world.
Connecting to VMI-Guest
How you connect depends on which operating system your device is running. Open the display of wireless networks that your device is seeing. The wireless network name is case sensitive. The VMI Guest network will show up as VMI-Guest. If it is not exactly VMI-Guest, it may not actually be a VMI wireless network and may not be safe to connect.
Connecting to eduroam
Use of the eduroam network requires an active VMI domain account/VMI login credentials and is accessible on-Post or at participating institutions. To connect to eduroam on all devices except Android devices, click on the eduroam wireless network to connect then enter your full VMI email address and password. For Android devices, the eduroam app must be installed prior to connecting to the eduroam wireless network.
