In the past, WiFi/WLAN Access has been cumbersome and error-prone.
This service will be improved on Friday August 24, 2007, ready before o-week:
- Connecting to the wireless network will no longer require a "secret" key.
- According to our university's new name the wireless network will be called "JACOBS".
- It will advertise itself: no more "searching for wireless networks".
- To enhance stability and manageability, WiFi/WLAN Access will require login of Jacobs University's members with CampusNet username/password, either
- via web browser (easier to use), or
- via VPN access (more secure).
- Guests and conference attendants can get WiFi/WLAN Access with temporary accounts provided by their hosts, via IT Support.
Using a web browser without login to the network will automatically show a login page.
The legacy "IUB-Bremen" network will cease to exist on that day.
