Wireless Network

The UH West O  Ľahu wireless network provides the students, faculty and staff of the University of Hawai'i access to internet resources without the use of wired connections. Coverage areas include all indoor areas on the UHWO Campus with some coverage in open areas near the buildings.

Wireless Network Setup

Connect to the UHWO SSID. After successfully connecting to the network, open any web browser (e.g. Internet Explorer, Firefox, etc.) to which you will see the wireless login screen. Enter your UH Username and password to start surfing the Web.

Pop-Up Blocker Settings

If your computer has pop-up blocking enabled, it may interfere with the authentication process. In order to use the wireless connection, you will need to allow pop-ups from the following website: aruba-master.leeward.hawaii.edu More information on pop-up blocker settings can be found in the documentation section.

Pass-through Authentication

You can now register your wireless devices with UH. This will allow you to travel to any UH campus and connect to the Internet without changing your current network settings.

  • Get the MAC address for your wireless device. Instructions on how to find it, can be found here.
  • Go to the Wireless Pass-through website located at: http://www.hawaii.edu/wireless/pt
  • Login with your UH username and password.
  • Register your MAC addresses (note: you can only have 10 devices registered at any one time)
