Wireless Network Setup

The SUNY Geneseo wireless network is based on IEEE 802.11 technology, also called "WiFi." This standard allows us to provide networking to computers over radio frequencies in the unlicensed 2.4 GHz and 5.2 GHz ranges. Our wireless network is comprised of "access points" manufactured by Cisco.

Be sure to select the SUNY Geneseo network with your computer or other wireless devices. Wireless printers and personal wireless routers will not work on our network.

Detailed information about Geneseo WiFi can be found at http://www.geneseo.edu/cit/wireless

In Your Room - Connecting via Ethernet

  1. Plug your computer into the ethernet jack provided in your room using an ethernet cable. If you do not have the necessary cable, you can purchase one in the campus store. Boot up your computer.
  2. Enter your Geneseo account username and password to provide 802.1x network authentication.
  3. If your Windows computer does not prompt you for Network Authentication, open a web browser (IE, Firefox, or Safari) to begin the process to enable 802.1x
