Middlebury has several wireless networks available; if possible, you should always use '''midd_secure''', as it is the fastest and most secure. Midd_unplugged is for guests, is slower, and should be avoided. '''Midd-standard''' was created to allow access for devices that cannot authenticate to midd_secure, and '''eduroam''' is available for guests from participating institutions who don't have Middlebury credentials.

= The Midd-standard Wireless Network  =
 
 
 
An additional wireless network access method named '''Midd-standard''' has been created on campus which promotes better connectivity to Middlebury resources.  '''Use this network only if you are unable to connect successfully using midd_secure.'''
 
 
 
Connecting to '''Midd-standard '''will improve your networking performance, provide added security for your data, and help us reduce the load on '''midd_unplugged '''so that our guests will have a viable Internet connection when visiting.
 
 
 
Please contact the Helpdesk at x2200 for the key to connect to '''Midd-standard'''. Use the '''Wireless Network&nbsp;Connection Status&nbsp;'''dialog box&nbsp;on your laptop to select '''Midd-standard'''.
 
 
 
'''NOTE:''' if you are already on '''midd_secure '''we recommend you stay with this access. Your Middlebury sign-in credentials will be the key for access and will not change. '''Midd-standard's''' key may change from time to time requiring you to re-authenticate to the network.
 
<br>
 
<br>
 
 
 
= The midd_unplugged Wireless Network  =
 
 
 
'''BIG NOTE: Midd_unplugged is slower -- we've reserved much less bandwidth for it!'''
 
 
 
'''Midd_unplugged''' is the unsecured, open network on campus, '''intended for guest use only'''. Anyone can access it and it is not password-protected, meaning that it is more susceptible to intrusion than Midd_secure is.
 
 
 
We recommend that students, faculty, and staff configure their computer to connect using '''Midd_secure''' for fastest, most secure access.
 
 
 
Any operating system can connect to midd_unplugged if in range using its standard network manager.
 
 
 
== Configure your Windows XP Computer for midd_unplugged <br>  ==
 
 
 
The '''midd_unplugged '''network can be used by those without a Middlebury College username and password. The network is outside the Middlebury College firewall.
 
 
 
Your Windows-based wireless network card should be ready once you’ve installed it. Please follow these instructions to verify a few network settings.
 
 
 
#Right-click '''My Network Places''', and select '''Properties''' from the pop-up menu.
 
#Double-click '''Wireless Network Connection'''.
 
#Click '''[[Image:Properties button.PNG]]'''.
 
#Click the '''Advanced''' tab.
 
#Verify that '''Internet Connection Sharing''' is turned ''off''.
 
#Click the '''General''' tab.
 
#Select '''Internet Protocol (TCP/IP) '''in the '''Components '''field.
 
#Click '''[[Image:Properties button.PNG]]'''.
 
#Verify that '''Obtain IP Address Automatically''' and '''Obtain DNS server address Automatically''' are bulleted.
 
#Click [[Image:OK xp button.PNG]].
 
#Restart your computer.
 
 
 
<br>
 
 
 
== Configure your Macintosh OS X Computer for midd_unplugged<br>  ==
 
 
 
Follow the instructions that come with your card for installing the card in your laptop.
 
 
 
#Check for updates for your card.
 
##Click '''System Preferences''' on the doc or from the [[Image:Mac apple menu.PNG]] menu select '''System Preferences'''.
 
##In the '''System''' section, click '''Software Update'''.
 
#Click [[Image:Mac network icon.PNG]].
 
#From the '''Show '''drop-down list, select '''AirPort'''.
 
#Click the '''AirPort tab'''.&nbsp;
 
#Click the '''join network with best signal''' radio button to bullet it.
 
#'''Important:''' Verify that the checkbox for '''Allow this computer to create networks''' is ''not checked''.
 
#Leave the checkbox for '''Show AirPort status in menu bar''' checked.
 
#Click the '''TCP/IP''' tab.
 
#From the '''Configure''' drop-down list, select '''Using DHCP'''.

= The eduroam Wireless Network =
 
Eduroam has become very popular at Colleges and Universities in Europe as a way for faculty, staff and students to be able to access the Internet wirelessly while visiting other participating institutions.  As a participating member of Eduroam, we now offer wireless Internet access in a secure and reliable manner to Eduroam-participating school members without having to have them register ahead of time.  Likewise, our faculty, staff and students will have wireless Internet access while visiting at other participating institutions.
 
 
 
You will know you are at a participating institution if you see a network called '''eduroam''' listed.  To use eduroam when traveling, you will need to enter your full '''username@middlebury.edu''' and password.
 
 
 
'''Important note:'''  While here on campus, Middlebury faculty, staff, and students do not benefit from use of the eduroam network.  It is designed for guests and does not provide the access or speed that you enjoy when using midd_secure.
