Connect an iOS Device to Hood's Unsecured Wireless Network

unsecure@hood is an open access network designated for wireless clients that are not compatible with WPA2 authentication, including most gaming consoles and mobile devices. Default authentication is via a web page requiring your Pergola User Name and Password. Users will need to re-authenticate if roaming between campus buildings or if there are periods of time that the client is disconnected from the network. 


1. Go to Settings > Wi-Fi

In this screen you will find all of the available networks to your iOS device at your location.  The networks with a "lock" signify a secure network which requires a user ID and password. The network without a "lock" is the unsecured network.

Double-click on "unsecure@hood".  This will start a process to connect your iOS device to Hood's unsecured wireless network.  You will need to login to this network.
