Wireless Networking at NC State
The office of Communication Technologies maintains a robust wireless data network throughout main campus, Centennial campus and the College of Veterinary Medicine. This network provides access to campus computing services and the Internet for all faculty, staff and students by using the UnityID and password credentials.
The current technology is based on 802.11 a/b/g/n protocols. (Note 802.11b data rates below 11Mbs have been turned off). Complete design and implementation for 802.11n continues as we work to enhance the general coverage are as well as classroom coverage in buildings across campus.
We also provide wireless access to the guests of NCSU. Guest access is primarily limited to web surfing and connecting to other secure services via virtual private networking (VPN).
For questions about wireless please see our FAQ or questions about policy please see our policy section.
For problems connecting to the wireless network please call the Help Desk at 515-4357.
