- Select Students, Staff.

- Under Mac OS X Lion, Mountain Lion & Mavericks, click Download for Mac 10.7 & Newer.

- When prompted to Install “URI Secure Wireless TLS”?, click Install.
- If prompted, type the password for your computer.
- URI_Secure should now be configured. To connect, click on the WiFi icon and select URI_Secure.
- Remove URI_Open from your Preferred Networks as described below.
Sometimes even after configuring URI_Secure, OS X will continue trying to connect to URI_open simply because you connected to URI_Open first. Follow these instructions to make it connect to URI_secure automatically instead.
- Click on the Wi-Fi icon at the top right of the screen.
- Select Open Network Preferences.
- Under the Wi-Fi section, click Advanced.
- In the Wi-Fi tab, locate URI_Open under Preferred Networks then select it and then hit the delete button (-).
- Click OK then Apply.
- Check your computer’s date and time. If your laptop battery has died recently, the date may have been reset. URI_Secure uses SSL certificates and will not work with an incorrect date.
