Introduction

TAMULink-guest is a wireless network that is available to Texas A&M University guests. To access to this network, a sponsoring department must request a guest NetID and a guest password from the Identity Management Office. The easiest way to request these is to use the form available at guests.tamu.edu.

 

Connecting to TAMULink-guest

 

1. Click on tamulink-guest [fig. 01].

2. You will be prompted for a "network password," or "pre-shared key (PSK)." The PSK password you enter here is tamuguest [fig. 02].

Depending on your device and operating system, you may see a message stating something similar to "You are connecting to the unsecured network "tamulink-guest." Information sent over this network is not encrypted and might be visible to other people." You will need to acknowledge this message before continuing.

Note: Some operating systems, such as Windows, will ask for a Network Security Key. This is the same thing as the "network password" or "pre-shared key."

3. Open a web browser. You should be taken to the "tamulink-guest" login page and asked to log in. Enter the guest NetID and guest password that you received from the "Identity Management Office." You should now be able to access the Internet normally [fig. 03].
