The wireless network allows access to the Internet, e-mail, and other web-based services from mobile devices without the constraint of a physical wire. There are wireless access areas in most buildings, residence halls, and outdoor areas around campus. In order to use the wireless network, the wireless network card must be configured with the SSID (or network name). The SSIDs (ccsu-bluenet and ccsu-public) are broadcast continuously by each access point on campus so the wireless network card should detect them automatically. Any mobile computing device (i.e. laptops, chromebooks, smartphones, and tablets) with integrated wireless networking capabilities should be able to connect to the wireless network. The wireless network is not designed to replace the wired network on campus but rather to supplement existing services. It is to be used by faculty, staff, and students; limited access is available to guests. The wireless network has bandwidth (speed) limitations compared to the wired network. Since it is a shared resource, do not download large files or stream video or audio (over 50 Kbps) over the wireless network.
