    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
