New wireless service expands campus internet
Wireless fidelity (Wi-Fi) internet access is now available to more than 4,500 students in residence halls on campus as part of an initiative that will make service available to Clairmont campus residential centers, Turner Village and fraternity and sorority housing by the end of August.
The new, recommended method of wireless access is Wi-Fi Protected Access (WPA), replacing the transitional Virtual Private Network (VPN) that has served the campus in the past.
To report trouble spots and service problems, contact the IT Help Desk at 404-727-7777 or visit http://help.emory.edu.
For more information on how to connect to the WPA network, go to www.wireless.service.emory.edu.
