Viewing Your EagleNet Access Key in TechExpress

There are two methods by which you can view/obtain an EagleNet access key. By far, the simplest method is to use TechExpress. If you prefer to obtain your access key manually (and have to keep up with it), then you can check the tab labeled Manual Registration (above).

  1. Go to https://express.tntech.edu. Log in with your Tennessee Tech username and password.

    Don't know your Tennessee Tech username and password? Try this page first: Setting Up Your TTU Account.

    You'll want to bookmark TechExpress, as you'll use it for most everything while you're at Tennessee Tech.



  2. In your Information area (on the left), there's a section labeled "EagleNet WiFi Key". To see your EagleNet key, click Show Existing Key.

Manually Registering for an EagleNet Access Key

  1. Go to connect.tntech.edu. Unless you've logged into TechExpress sometime in the past 12 hours, you'll be prompted by IDme to log in with your TTU username and password. Do so.
