At Jacobs University, all lecture halls and most of the campus allow Wireless LAN access.

Most of the access points are based on the standard IEEE 802.11b which operates at a nominal speed of 11 MBit/s.

Especially in and around the Campus Center Building access via IEEE 802.11g is available at a maximum theoretical speed of 54 Mbit/s.

(thumbs up) For working at Jacobs University with wireless LAN you can use any 802.11b or 802.11g capable wireless LAN card.

(question) If in doubt, check the manual of your computer or WLAN card, or consult your computer vendor.

(star) The network is operated in "managed" or "infrastructure" mode.

The network is called JACOBS and will announce itself. You can also search for it.

Only very few sites are available through WLAN without login.

For full network access, you have to login to the network, either by

  • using VPN Access, or
  • web login with a web browser with CampusNet credentials.

WLAN is insecure

If you require secure communication, be sure to use web pages via https and/or use VPN Access over WLAN!

For guests, WLAN access can be established by issuing a temporary account. The host should send a request to IT Support in time.

Additionally there is a flyer in english, german and a double-sided version with a short introduction on how to configure MS Windows XP and Apple MacOS X for use with Jacobs University's WLAN.
