Instructions for Using the Cameron Wireless Network
Before connecting a wireless device to the campus network, please be sure to have up-to-date virus / malware protection installed if the device allows for that and make sure that all critical updates and patches have been installed. Windows updates can be installed by visiting update.microsoft.com or checking Control Panel -> Windows Update.
Most portable devices have networking capabilities. Make sure that the wireless network is turned on in the device. If the device is also connected to the network with a cable, disconnect the cable.
Make sure that wireless or wi-fi is enabled and that CU Wireless Network is the SSID / network name selected or joined.
Once the network is joined, open a web browser and try connecting to a website. A Bluesocket login page should appear. If the page does not appear, try connecting directly to http://188.8.131.52.
Follow the instructions on the web page displayed and logon to the wireless network.
When you logon, you will be assigned a Faculty/Staff, Student, or Guest role. Each role provides different access to the network. Faculty/Staff and Student roles tend to offer more access and higher bandwidth than Guest. Guests only receive the ability to view web pages with some limited VPN capabilities.
