Wireless Routers

Best use of wireless routers in Franz Hall

Most rooms in Franz Hall and the Life Sciences Building have the potential to have at least 2 active network ports.  These are meant for computers and printers only.  When other devices like hubs or routers are plugged into these ports and configured incorrectly, it can create havoc for other users on the network.  It is preferable to use the eduroam network rather than set up your own wireless router.  If you do set up your own wireless router, please submit a helpdesk request to have it configured properly.

If you already have a router we ask that you provide us with the room number where the router is located.  Secure your wireless network by requiring a password.  Change the default administrator password for the management of the router itself.
