Wireless Access

Most of the study carrels in the library and the classrooms are hard wired for high-speed Internet access. Also, Wireless Access is available to Faculty, Staff, Students and Guests as long as they have a UW account used for security authentication and a laptop with an 802.11b or 802.11g-compliant wireless network card.

The way laptops connect to this Wireless network may differ depending on the hardware (brand/model), the software installed and user configuration. But in general, the laptop automatically detects all the wireless networks available in the range (Uwyo and UWguest in our case) and connects to one of them without user intervention. However, if you are using XP and it is the first time that you are connecting to this network, you may need to do minor settings to make Uwyo work properly since it is secure.

Once the laptop is connected, open your browser and the authentication page will ask for your username and password. Provide them accordingly, for the Organization select uwyo and click login. If the information given is correct, your default homepage should open now.

Unlike the hard wired network, the wireless is less reliable, and there may be cases when the authentication fails for no good reason. If this happens to you, please see Edward (office 139) to discuss possible solutions.

Also, whenever you are using the College network, be aware of the University regulations regarding the proper use of computing and data communication facilities (UNIREG 3-690).
