University residence halls are equipped for wireless connectivity to the Northwestern Network. For your convenience, configure your laptop for wireless access before you get to campus. NUIT has provided a few quick links to jump start your connection process:
- Windows Vista users need to download and run the Vista wizard.
- Mac OS X 10.5 (Leopard) users should follow these simple steps for connectivity.
If your computer has an older operating system, you can still prepare to get connected before arriving on campus:
- Windows XP users need to download and run the XP wizard. You may also need to download and install the WPA2 patch from Microsoft.
- Mac OS X 10.4 (Tiger) users, configure your machine before you authenticate to the network.
Look for "NU Wireless Access" signs around campus for additional wireless access point locations.
As a reminder, it is strongly recommended that you bring an Ethernet cable to campus to access NUTV, as it is only accessible via a wired connection.
