Wired connectivity is the standard method of connecting stationary equipment such as desktop computers, printers, etc. to the campus network. Wired connectivity is provided for university-owned equipment in academic and administrative buildings on campus, and in the Innovation Center. Wired connectivity is provided to students in the residence halls through ResNET.
UW-Whitewater employees can submit a request to activate, deactivate, move or install a network jack. Contact the Technology Support Center (TSC) Helpdesk at 262-472-HELP (4357) or email firstname.lastname@example.org and provide the following information:
There is no charge to move or deactivate a network jack. There is a $175 charge for a new jack activation. Requested network jacks will be activated within 3-10 business days.
Wireless network connectivity is provided for convenience and mobility for laptops and other mobile devices. Wireless network access is available in all of the major academic and administrative areas, as well as outdoor areas on campus. Wireless is intended to augment the wired network and is not intended to replace a wired network connection for stationary equipment.
Wireless networking on campus is funded primarily through Student Technology Fee and focuses on providing general student access. For applications of wireless networking in instructional or administrative settings (classrooms or offices), please contact the TSC Helpdesk to initiate a consultation.
Employees will need up-to-date antivirus software to utilize campus network services - including wi-fi - from a personal computer.
To request a new wired connection, activation of an existing wired connection, to schedule a consultation on the application or use of wireless in your instructional or administrative are, please contact the Help Desk at 262-472-HELP(4357) or via email at email@example.com.
