The University of Vigo has a wireless network in every faculty of its three campuses. This network was designed to work in the most common operating systems.
In the School, you can connect a device to Wi-Fi using ALUMNOS network. This network connection is unprotected, but once the browser opens, it will require a user and a password to work.
To establish a connection, you will need an email address of the University of Vigo. Once you obtain it, the user and the password to access the Wi-Fi network are the user and password of your email address.
Uvigo email address: email@example.com
Uvigo password: 1234
Alumnos user: firstname.lastname@example.org
Alumnos password: 1234
It has to be noticed that ALUMNOS wireless network is not encrypted so an advanced user can access to confidential information. Students are advised to make careful use of wireless networks.
