Wireless on campus

Categories: Midd Blogosphere

A new wireless network access method has been created on campus which promotes better connectivity to Middlebury resources. 

The new wireless access (SSID) is: MIDD-STANDARD.  Currently many users access our wireless network by turning-on their laptop and automatically connecting to midd_unplugged.  Although this is an easy connection for many this particular wireless access point is becoming saturated with connections and performance is degrading.  There is no security on midd_unplugged; using it puts your data at risk.

Connecting to MIDD-STANDARD will improve your networking performance, provide added security and help us reduce the loads on midd_unplugged so that our guests will continue to have a viable Internet connection when visiting.

To connect to MIDD-STANDARD you will need to contact the Helpdesk at x2200 for the key. You will then go into your wireless network console on your laptop and select MIDD-STANDARD from the list. 

NOTE: if you are already on midd_secure we recommend you stay with this access.  Your Middlebury sign-in credentials will be the key for access and will not change.  MIDD-STANDARD’s key may change from time to time requiring you to re-authenticate to the network.

If you have any questions, please contact the Helpdesk at x2200.
