Wireless Network

VMI has high-speed wireless network capabilities on Post to allow users easy access the VMI network and the internet. Wireless technology gives users the freedom to access the internet and network resources without the limitations of being physically connected to the network infrastructure via wires. 

VMI offers three separate wireless networks: “VMI-Guest,” “VMI-Sentinel,” and “eduroam". VMI Guest is open to the public and visitors to VMI. VMI-Sentinel is a secure, encrypted network and is limited to VMI faculty, staff, and cadets. You must have valid VMI login credentials to connect to VMI-Sentinel. Eduroam is also a secure and encrypted wireless network requiring your VMI login credentials to access. Eduroam however will allow VMI faculty, staff, and cadets to securely connect to the wireless network at participating institution throughout the country.
