Cayuga CC Offers Free Wireless Network

DATE: 01-30-2006

A laptop or notebook computer with a wireless network adapter is all that's needed to connect to the internet at the Auburn campus of Cayuga Community College.

OpenCayuga, a wireless network funded by the student technology fee, offers free use of the internet in designated areas for students, faculty, staff, and visitors. A computer with a wireless adapter will automatically offer the option to go online via OpenCayuga, if it's operating in one of the college's wireless zones or WiFi hot spots. These are located in library, Spartan Hall cafeteria, and main building lobby areas.

This wireless DSL internet connection, a free service for the convenience of users, is unsecured and unencrypted. The College's printers are not connected to the network and it is not supported by data center or computer lab services. Users should maintain their own virus protection and software firewalls, as they would with a plug-in internet connection. Use of the network is not permitted for commercial or inappropriate purposes, and OpenCayuga may be monitored or restricted by the College.
