Wireless network access allows people with laptop computers to access the Internet and the usual network resources such as email and fileshares without a wired physical connection to a network jack or phone line.
Based on your feedback from the Student Life Surveys and the TechQual Survey, a new wireless infrastructure is being installed across campus that will provide 802.11ac coverage and quadruple the number of access points installed. The entire project will be completed by August 2015. Details about the project, including the upgrade status of individual locations and an FAQ.
Wireless networks are a shared resource: the more users connected to a wireless access point, the less bandwidth available to each of them. Please be considerate of fellow community members. Downloading large files (movie trailers, MP3s, etc), streaming audio & video, and using file sharing services are better done with your wired connection.
You need three things:
- A laptop computer.
- A wireless Ethernet card compatible with 802.11a or 802.11b/g/n and WPA2 Enterprise standard.
- Your Clark Account credentials.
