wifi@nmit just got easier - July 2012
We listened to the feedback we received in relation to the original wifi rollout throughout NMIT campuses and have launched a new better service that will give staff and students with access to the wifi a one time only log in.
Find out how you can set up on your device:
These are some of the services that you can access via wifi@nmit:
- HTTP, HTTPS and FTP (Web)
- IMAP, IMAPS and POP3 (Email)
- iTunes and Google Play
- Skype and Facetime
- Telnet, SSH and IPSec
Get started now - login to wifi@nmit on your wireless enabled device
Don't worry if you can't connect to the new network - just login into old-wifi@nmit on your wireless enabled device and come and let us know next time you're in a campus library.
Progress Report - May 2010
The Wireless Network is coming and very soon now!
The work to setup the NMIT Wireless Network is almost complete. The ICT Services project team, including Alphawest and Newscom, have been seen hard at work in recent months appearing in every corner of every campus.

Last week, our Child Studies program area ran a very successful pilot class with a limited form of the full scale Wireless Network. Students were able to bring their laptops into the classroom in an area of the Preston campus that has no wired network at all and access the Internet as part of their lesson.
Behind the scenes there is a flurry of activity as we put the finishing touches to how we will be offering this service to all staff and students.
We are currently finalising the plans and documentation covering topics like:
- How to connect to the Wireless Network
- What to do when a connection is not possible.
- Where to go for help and information.
- How and where to print from a wireless device.
These are just some of the areas in which we will be providing information and guidance.

The wireless coverage surveys were completed across all campuses of NMIT. Temporary wireless access points were set up and radio frequency quality was mapped from different locations within each area. The mapping occured from classrooms, staff rooms and in the open areas.
