GTother provides a connection method for wireless devices that are not enabled with WPA Enterprise authentication and thus cannot connect to the GTwpa network. GTother uses WPA2 with PSK authentication. A Pre-shared key is used when connecting and gives a basic layer two connection to the wireless LAWN network. In order to use the connection to gain access to the Internet you will be sent to a portal where you will need to log in with your active GT account username and password. For support, contact your departmental support staff (sometimes referred to as CSR), or contact the OIT Technology Support Center (located on the second floor of Clough Commons or by phone at: 404-894-7173).
GTother should be used in the following cases:
- Devices that are shared among users.
- Devices (such as AppleTV, Playstation 3, XBox360, etc) that do not support WPA-Enterprise. Note: Even though these devices can be put on GTother, you will still have to authenticate them. If your device has a web browser, you should be able to authenticate from the device itself. Otherwise, you can authenticate a connected device via the LAWN Authentication Pages to enable its network access (you will need to know the device's MAC address).
