Queensu wireless network has reached end of life

Queen’s currently has two wireless networks that users can connect to: “queensu” (unsecured) and “QueensuSecure_WPA2” (secured).

In an effort to ensure our networks are secure and protect our campus users, the unsecured wireless network “queensu” will be disabled as of February 1, 2017.

If you are currently connecting to the Queen’s wireless network using this login portal, please disconnect from this network.

Queen’s provides an encrypted secure wireless network (QueensuSecure_WPA2) that can be used by selecting the network and logging in with your NetID and password.

Why use a secured wireless network?

The QueenuSecure_WPA2 network is secure, meaning it is encrypted. An unsecured network leaves your data open for interception by unwelcome parties. By signing in to the secure login, not only are you ensuring that the network you are connecting with is protecting your information, it also ensures that only individuals authorized to access university resources may do so.

Be sure to follow other secure computing best practices such as encrypting your mobile devices, installing anti-virus and regularly scan your computer and/or laptops for viruses, malware and spyware.

Need help?

If you require assistance with configuring the QueensuSecure_WPA2 network on your device, please visit the wireless tutorials on the ITS website or contact the IT Support Centre at 613-533-6666 or by filling in the Online Help Form.
