Wireless installations are coordinated by LTS. Only equipment installed and approved by LTS will be allowed to operate within campus limits. Special exemptions can be made for research or scientific use. All access points will be centrally managed by LTS.
Under current FCC regulations, Brandeis University has the right to allow or disallow any device operating, within campus limits, in the 902-928 MHz (915MHz), 2400-2483.5MHz (2.4GHz) and 5725-5850MHz (5.7GHz) bands. This includes all dorms.
Unauthorized Wireless Devices
Any device that operates in the 902-928MHz (915MHz), 2400-2483.5MHz (2.4GHz) and 5725-5850 MHz (5.7GHz) bands that either disrupts our wireless network or attempts to provide service on those bands, will not be allowed.
LTS monitors and maintains all access points. LTS provides basic Help Desk support for wireless card selection, configuration and network connectivity issues. Please contact the Help Desk for wireless configuration examples.
Secure and Open Connections
In order to provide the broadest range of compatibility across wireless client adapters, LTS has set up two wireless networks or SSID's. They are: brandeis_secure, a WPA2 encrypted network with unrestricted access, and brandeis_open, an open unencrypted network with restricted protocols and support for gaming and non-browser systems. There is also brandeis_guest which is an Open unencrypted network for guests of Brandeis with basic networking only
