Wireless Network Upgrade and Access

The following information is from Karen Klose, Associate Provost for Information Technology Services.  If you have questions or comments, please respond to its@fredonia.edu.


The wireless network received a major upgrade this summer, thanks to the herculean efforts of Resnet and ITS Data Communications professionals and student employees, and funding from Residence Life and the Technology Fee.

Beginning Tuesday, August 20, 2013 the  FredoniaState Wireless Network will be removed and the following three wireless networks (SSIDs) will be available.  Wireless network users are encouraged to use FREDsecure.

The following information is available at this link http://www.fredonia.edu/resnet/wirelessNetworkservices.asp

FREDsecure

FREDsecure is the secure wireless network which utilizes 802.1X to provision WPA2-Enterprise to a diverse array of network devices campus-wide. It is highly recommended that all campus wireless network users utilize the FREDsecure service if you are accessing online financial services, online shopping and any official campus eService (ANGEL, FREDMail, YourConnection etc.). FREDsecure users need to utilize their eServices I.D. and password for access.

FREDguest

 

FREDguest is the open and clear (unsecured) wireless network available to students, faculty/staff and guests on campus who wish to temporarily use the campus wireless network for basic web browsing. This wireless network is limited to utilizing TCP ports 80 (http) and 443 (https) and will include a session timeout. FREDguest users will need to be sponsored by a campus affiliate with an active eServices account to gain access.


FREDmedia


FREDmedia is the open and clear (unsecured) wireless network exclusively designed for supported gaming and multi-media devices. Only supported devices will be permitted to connect to the FREDmedia wireless network. FREDmedia wireless network users need to utilize their eServices account to register their devices before being permitted to join the wireless network.

It is the intention of Resnet and ITS to provide a secure, yet convenient and reliable wireless service.  To continue doing so, your feedback is important and appreciated.  Please report any wireless network problems via FredQuest https://fredquest.fredonia.edu/
