Access and services
Laptops have access to local wireless networks at all campuses. Also, certain access points are cabled. All college services will encrypt your user name and password.
Capacity will vary with distance to local access point, and with number of connected users.
Which wireless network?
The college is a member of Eduroam. You may choose either the "HiT" (no password required) or the "Eduroam" wireless network (password required), but note:
- The open "HiT" network will be closed sometime in 2010
- On login to "eduroam", you must type (your) "firstname.lastname@example.org" (as opposed to your "username" only)
- Feel free to use "eduroam" now (sooner or later it will be the only wireless network available )
Use the documents in norwegian (norwegian site) to set up your computer for "eduroam", or se the external link for examples in english.
A service for visitors is under planning.
If you have a laptop with docking in your office, you should use the cabled network (e.g. use the docking station). It is faster and more services are available.
