Wireless Internet Access

Service Description

The Wireless Internet Access is a service offered by the University of Windsor that allows you to connect to the Internet wirelessly from anywhere on campus, including all of the residences. Wireless technology today makes connecting to the Internet convenient and easy. Throughout the residence and campus buildings, there are a number of Wireless Access Points (or WAPs) which allow your computer to connect to the Internet through the use of a wireless adapter. Most laptops now come with wireless adapters, but don’t despair if you are working with a desktop computer. Many USB wireless adapters are available that allow you to literally just plug-in and play-away! To ensure a safe and secure wireless network for everyone, it is important that you read and comply with the Wireless Acceptable Use Guidelines outlined by IT Services.
