1. What is wireless internet access?
Wireless internet access is a connection to the internet without the typical wires necessary. It is accomplished by using radio waves sent by an access point provided by the school, and received by a wireless network card in a user's laptop computer or wireless device.
2. Where is it available?
Wireless Internet is currently available in all student areas of the Law School, Barristers, and the quad area outside for Delaware and the library building, the administrative building, and the sidebar for Harrisburg. Each time you access the wireless network you will be required to register using your Widener Universal ID and password found.
3. What are the requirements?
Users need to have a wireless network card and a compatible laptop computer (see the computer recommendations). Wireless cards are available at local electronic stores for around $40. Wireless network cards are usually built into most new laptops. Widener uses an 802.11b/g wireless network, which means that 802.11b and 802.11g cards will work.
4. How do I get started using the wireless internet?
If your laptop does not recognize the Widener network automatically please contact us at 302-477-2221 for Delaware, 717-541-1927 for Harrisburg, or come to the ITS Office for help configuring your wireless. To access the wireless network, open your browser. You will be directed to a login page. Log on using your Widener Universal ID and password.
