GTother is available to Georgia Tech faculty and staff, and should be used to connect devices that do not support WPA2 Enterprise (such as game consoles and embedded devices). In order to connect to GTother, you will need the network's WPA2 Security Key, which can be found here. You will need to enter your GT username and password into your web browser each time you log onto the internet. To avoid this, you can submit a Long-Term GTother Registration Request which will allow us to register your device's MAC address.
- Ensure that wireless is enabled on your device.
- Navigate to the wireless internet settings for your device. This usually takes the form of an icon in your device's taskbar. In Windows, it is usually located in the in the lower right, and on a Mac is it usually located in the upper right. Both icons appear as signal bars. On devices like TVs and game consoles, you can typically find these settings under a "Network" or "Internet" tab.
- If applicable, tell your device to scan for wireless networks.
- On the list of networks that appears, select GTother.
- Enter the WPA2 key for the wireless network which you can find on the LAWN SSID and WPA page.
- If your device tries to run a connection test, it will fail. That's okay, as you're not completely connected yet.
- If given the option, choose to mark GTother as a Public Network.
- Open up a web browser of your choice. If your device does not have a web browser, you need to connect through LAWN Device Login.
- You should automatically be redirected to the LAWN login page. If you're not redirected automatically, navigate to www.gatech.edu. Enter your GT username and password and click Login.
- After authenticating, you should be able to access the Internet.
