About LAWN - Introduction

The Georgia Tech LAWN (Local Area Walkup & Wireless Network) is designed for students, faculty, staff, and institute guests who are mobile network users. The LAWN gives mobile users access to the Internet and most campus computing resources. LAWN access is available from nearly every building on campus including offices, labs, classrooms, student residence halls, and some outdoor spaces. Some campus locations, the library and many classrooms for example, also provide wired (Ethernet) LAWN ports. Wireless devices on campus will be see the following LAWN WiFi networks (SSIDs).

  • GTwifi is the default LAWN SSID and what most devices should use to connect. GTwifi provides a way for WPA2 Enterprise wireless devices to connect to LAWN using GT accounts and passwords. GTwifi capable devices store login credentials so they do not need to be provided on every association.

  • GTother provides a connection method for wireless devices that are not enabled with WPA2 Enterprise authentication and thus cannot connect to the GTwifi network. GTother uses WPA2 with PSK (pre-shared key) authentication and web based authentication of users.

  • GTvisitor is the commercial wired and wireless network service for campus visitors providing seamless wireless mobility throughout the campus, and is available at all wireless locations on the Atlanta and Savannah campuses, including the Georgia Tech Hotel and Conference Center.

Status: Minor problem reported
The system is experiencing minor issues.

The LAWN service has been experiencing intermittent authentication failures during periods of high load. We are placing the service in Yellow as we work on a permanent solution; as some users may experience dropped connections during periods of high load.
