On the entire campus area, the mobile access through wireless LAN is possible. Campus wide currently 57 access points perform their work and ensure a high signal availability and quality as well as high performance of the wireless network.
By the renewal of the wireless infrastructure in summer 2010, transfer rates up to 300Mbit/s are supported. By authenticating directly on the access point, the usage of a secure VPN (Virtual Private Network) connection becomes unnecessary.
Your wireless connection is also protected by a tap-proof WPA2/AES encryption. If your device supports only WPA/TKIP encryption, we recommend a firmware upgrade or a purchase of a new wireless network adapter to optimally protect your wireless connection.
Installation instructions for the wireless connection are available for a wide range of operating systems:
