Wireless encryption provides a high level of assurance that only authorized users can access the network. This will allow us to ensure the security of our data as we use the wireless network on campus. NOTE: Before you can begin using the new secure SSIDs, you must follow the simple, one-time installation instructions as outlined below.
You will use one of the aformentioned encrypted SSIDs on your handheld devices as well. You will only have to set up and authenticate to this SSID the first time and your connection should be re-established whenever you come on to campus.
You can attempt to follow the steps below to connect to the encrypted wireless but, if it doesn't work, you may need to reset your password at https://controlpanel.vassar.edu. You will be required to make a new password to meet our security requirements as outlined on the Control Panel page.
