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. 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.
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.
