Wireless Password & Authentication Policy
Queens College, City University of New York is a public liberal arts college with over 20,000 students and 3,500 faculty and staff.
That said, we offer wireless access all across our 77 acre campus. To use our wireless service the student, faculty, staff, alums, guest has to provide credentials, usually their (AD Username and Password).
For guests, their e-mail address is provided and their bandwidth is throttled down providing slower Internet access. That said our wifi is set up outside of our firewall and everyone basically has open access to the Internet. In order to use our internal applications additional authentication is required.
I want to move away from requiring any authentication as the only service our wifi is providing is direct access to the Internet.
- Are there any schools offering unauthenticated wireless?
- Do these schools have any regulatory concerns?
I think if Starbucks can do it, airports can do it, why can't we?
