Wireless Devices

In order to ensure that the campus wireless network, IllinoisNet, has strong coverage throughout the halls for you and your community, we do not allow devices that will interfere with the network signal.

Routers

Wireless routers are not allowed in the residence halls or Goodwin-Green apartments, even if the SSID is hidden. Rooms with wireless routers will have their connection disabled until the wireless router is removed. Ethernet switches that do not broadcast a wireless signal are allowed.

Hotspots

Wireless hotspots (including tethering / Internet sharing), are not allowed in the residence halls or Goodwin-Green apartments. Hotspots or tethering devices that operate via wire are allowed as long as they do not broadcast a wireless signal.

Wireless printers

Many printers have wireless functionality. In order to ensure that the campus wireless network, IllinoisNet, has strong coverage throughout the halls for you and your community, we do not allow printers to use their wireless functionality. You may still use personal printers as long as their wireless functionality is turned off.   Please consider a green option to use the printer in the computer labs.
