Self Help - Encrypted Wireless Network (Chrome OS)
Using the Geneseo secure wireless network has many advantages. All of your network traffic is encrypted and therefore protected from easily being captured by those around you. You also will not have to authenticate every time you use the wireless network. These directions will help you setup your Chrome OS Device to access Geneseo's secure wireless network. These settings have not been tested with all Chrome OS models or versions of operating system's. Please contact the CIT HelpDesk at 585-245-5588 if you have any questions.
