In the past, 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, 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 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.
