PRIVATE AND SECURED

UTS provides the infrastructure that enables wireless connection on a large percentage of the campus. PioneerNet is PRIVATE and SECURED -- Getting on the network requires logging into the system using a DU ID and passcode. Your wireless network card needs to support WPA/WPA2 Enterprise (also called 802.1x) and one of the 802.11b/g/a/n standards.

CONVENIENCE VS CONNECTION SPEED

The DU Wireless Networks are designed to supplement the extensive wired campus network infrastructure. Because wireless connections are not designed for large file transfers or streaming video, please plug into a network jack whenever possible for the best performance. REMEMBER: A wired connection is nearly always faster than a wireless connection.
