Wireless Network (Wi-Fi)

Service description

PSU offers secure and nonsecure wireless networks on campus. The difference between secure and nonsecure wireless networks is that a secure wireless network will encrypt the internet traffic from your computer to the wireless access point. Older devices and operating systems that are not able to connect to the secure network can connect to the nonsecure network, but OIT recommends always connecting to PSU Secure if you are able.
