The mathematics department is covered by both AirPennNet and AirPennNet-Guest. If you have any issues connecting to wireless please report them to firstname.lastname@example.org and your request will be responded to as quickly as possible.
If you are planning on connecting to wireless for any significant amount of time it is highly suggested that you use AirPennNet over AirPennNet-Guest. AirPennNet is not only faster, but also more secure, as it uses stronger encryption. You can access AirPennNet and AirPennNet-Guest from many places all around campus, please see ISC's coverage map.
For information on how to set up wireless on your own please see below.
Accessing the internet from AirPennNet-Guest is as simple as connecting to AirPennNet-Guest and then opening your web browser. This will automatically redirect you to a website where you can enter your PennKey credentials and be assigned an IP address. If you are a visitor you can request a temporary PennKey. Please contact Monica in the math office for more information.
Note: You should only use AirPennNet-Guest for temporary access, if you will be here on a more permanent basis it is wise to set up AirPennNet as your wireless connection.
Accessing the internet from AirPennNet is simple. To do so, connect to AirPennNet-Help and open your web browser; at this point you will be redirected to a page requesting that you download software to automatically configure your computer or device for AirPennNet access. It is important to connect to AirPennNet rather than AirPennNet-Help after the auto-configuration is completed.
While the auto configuration works most of the time, sometimes errors occur causing the configuration to fail. In these instances you can use the step by step tutorials for various operating systems as listed below:
Desktops & Laptops: Fedora 15
If you have signal issues in any area of the building please report them to email@example.com.
