International House broadcasts three wireless networks:
1. "International House” is an open unencrypted network available to visitors and residents
2. “IH-Secure” is the encrypted network. This network is available only to I-House residents and only after completing the onboarding process.
3. “IH-Onboard” is the wireless network to join in order to add your devices to the encrypted network.
The IH-Secure network uses a secure authentication mechanism known as WPA2-Enterprise and 802.1X. This security mechanism protects your user name, password, .and data with network encryption.
Your network connection requires specific settings in order to use the IH-Secure network. Connecting to IH-Onboard will launch a tool called Xpress Connect by Cloudpath to automatically configure your network settings. After your device's initial configuration and connection, subsequent connections to the IH-Secure network are automatically authenticated and connected.
Note: In the process of setting up your secure connection, you will need to know your IHouseID which can be found by logging into the Starrez portal.
Devices without a browser, such as gaming consoles, will not have access to the encrypted network at this time and should continue to connect using the open International House network.
Below are links to the setup process for the most common operating systems.
