How to connect to the wireless internet on campus
Students and employees of HÍ have free access to the wireless internet on campus called HINET, which can be found in nearly all buildings of the University.
Network key (WEP key, security key) for your wireless network is 12345
Note that in order for it to work, you must follow the instructions listed here below.
Students are now able to register two computers (or phone/device) to the wireless internet. To register the third device, click here.
In order to connect to the internet one has to be registered as a user (student/employees) and have an Ugla account. Following those 3 steps will guide you through the process:
1. Find the MAC address for the wireless network card.
When applying for the internet you need to find the MAC address of the wireless net card. Below are further instructions on how to find the so called MAC address for different types of operating systems:
2. Register the MAC address in Ugla.
When you have found the MAC Address you need to register it in Ugla: http://ugla.hi.is, this can be done in any of the University's computer labs or other places with internet connection.
Start by clicking "Computer services" and then "Internet connections", then click "Wireless Internet Apply".
A window like the one above appears and you need to fill in the MAC address, which you previously found on your computer. There is no need to add space between the letters/numbers nor does small or capital letter matter. Next click "Send" and approximately 30 minutes later the registration goes through and you can go to step 3.
3. Connect the computer to the wireless (HINET) network.
You should be able to adjust the wireless net card on your computer 30 minutes after completing the registration, of the MAC address (step 2.), by entering the WEP key 12345. However there are a few net cards which require a Hexadecimal number which is 3132333435.
Usually the steps above are enough but occasionally the net card is not adjusted for receiving an IP address. Below are instructions on how to connect with different operating systems:
