Networking

Local ITS staff can assist clients with networking issues that need to be diagnosed or configuring. This includes desktop/laptop/mobile wired and wireless connections.

They can also assist with recommending and setting up wireless access points where the campus Eduroam/Cruznet is not available or not optimal.  Please make sure and consult with local ITS staff before you purchase and configure a wireless access point.

Clients can make request for hostnames, web site addresses, through the local ITS staff.
