Description

Dartmouth provides wired and wireless access to the Dartmouth network.

All wired devices must be registered to the network to associate the device with an individual user.

Dartmouth’s wireless system provides support for 802.11 a/g/n wireless standards. There are three main SSIDs: Eduroam, Dartmouth Secure, and Dartmouth Public. Within the libraries on campus there is also Dartmouth Library Public.
