Wireless Campus Network

 

Networks & Telecom provides centrally managed wireless network connectivity to the Internet using technology by Aruba Networks. 

 

Queen's provides three wireless networks, two secure and one not. The system continues to grow in both coverage and capacity. An updated list is available under  Wireless Locations .


ITServices strongly recommends that you use the secure wireless network when accessing wireless Internet service on campus.The " queensu " unsecure network is provided for computers that are unable to use WPA2 security. For more information on the  queensu  unsecure wireless network visit the  Unsecure wireless tutorial . Any 802.11a/b/g/ WiFi certified network card should work with the Queen’s Wireless. Check with your manufacturer for details or call the ITS helpline (613-533-6666).

 

As always, a wired connection is preferred when the location from which you access the network is fixed. You can benefit from the greater speed and reliability of the wired connection. Wireless is really about convenience for mobility.
