Laptops, Portable Devices and Wireless

A Public Network has been created for portable devices to eliminate the risk to the Secure Campus Network. This "Internet Only" network was established to provide a means for faculty, staff, and students to connect to the Internet from on campus with personally owned portable devices. 

Laptop computers or other mobile computing devices may only connect to the wireless Internet on the wireless public network and never through a direct connection (wall jack).

Direct connection violations may be ticketed under New York State Penal Law:

Section 156.05 - A person is guilty of unauthorized use of a computer (misdemeanor)
Section 156.10 - A person is guilty of computer tresspass (felony)
when he/she knowingly uses a computer service without authorization.

Wireless access to the public network is available in designated areas. Students may bring Laptop computers or PDA's equipped with wireless cards to campus. Wireless cards must meet 802.11b or 802.11g standards. Generic or non-quality wireless cards can cause connectivity problems. Laptop computers and PDA's are not to be directly connected to the secure campus network.
