Goodbye moobilenetx, Hello eduroam!

In June, UC Davis will be retiring the moobilenetx wireless network in favor of eduroam.

The eduroam network is available not just at UC Davis, but also at hundreds of other universities and other institutions world-wide, including most of our sister UC campuses.

When visiting other institutions that participate in eduroam, your wireless devices will automatically and securely connect using your UC Davis credentials.

If your devices are using moobilenetx, please take a few moments to switch them to eduroam now!

Here are some frequently asked questions and answers about this upcoming change:

How do I check which wireless network I’m using?

  • On a Mac, click on the wireless icon in the menu bar. The currently-selected wireless network will have a check mark next to it.
  • On Windows 7, 8, and 10, click on the wireless icon in the system tray (next to the date in the lower right corner). The currently-selected wireless network will be listed at the top of the menu.
  • On Android, unlock your device, then pull down from the notification bar at the top of the screen. Look for the “Wi-Fi connected” notification, which will also display the name of the currently-connected network.
  • On iOS, open the Settings app. The currently-selected wireless network will be displayed next to “Wi-Fi.”

What credentials do I use to connect to eduroam? (Or, why isn’t my UC Davis login ID working?)

Since eduroam is available at many institutions, you need to add “@ucdavis.edu” to the end of your UC Davis login ID to let the system know your home institution.

Note that this is NOT your email address, but rather your loginid@ucdavis.edu, where loginid is the username you use to log into most UC Davis systems.
