This page is your launch-pad for getting connected to the technology resources available to Geneseo students. Please contact CIT if you have any questions or need assistance with your computer or other device on campus.
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 Secure-WPA2 or SUNY Geneseo network with your computer or other wireless devices.
Detailed information about Geneseo WiFi can be found at http://www.geneseo.edu/cit/wireless
In Your Room - Connecting via Ethernet
- 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.
- Open a web browser (IE, Firefox, or Safari) to begin the registration process. Sign in with your Geneseo email account information. An automatic assessment tool will scan your computer to ensure that your system is ready for the network.
- Follow the instructions on your screen to complete the process. If your computer fails the scan, please contact the HelpDesk at 585-245‐5588.
- Shut down your computer. Restart after about five minutes. When you boot up again you should be connected to the Geneseo network.
