WIFI AT COMENIUS UNIVERSITY
The WiFi (Wireless Fidelity) technology serves for wireless connection of portable devices to a computer network. At selected points at Comenius University it makes the IIKS UK and the Internet services available for the purposes of the educational process or scientific research. Since 1 December 2008 Comenius University has offered the WiFi connection which has been integrated in the project. This service is intended for students and CU staff, as well as for users coming from the institutions participating in the Eduroam project.
While using the service, the user’s personal computer becomes part of the CU computer network, and therefore the user is obliged to observe the General Regulations for Behaviour of the CU Computer Network User.
It is to be pointed out that this service should be used to stimulate the educational process and scientific research and that the users’ behaviour should thus accord with the purpose.
To use the service, a wireless client card is required with your device (802.11b or802.11g) and you must be within the range of the WiFi connection. The service must be configured in the operation system. The PDA with Windows Mobile 5.0, Mac OS X, GNU/Linux (Mandriva, Debian), Windows XP and Windows Vista connections have been realized. The name of the wireless network (SSID), to which you can get connected within the WiFi service, is eduroam. The service is gradually being introduced to all CU parts.
Configure your client according the manuals found in the upper part of this site.
