The CSU wireless network has been upgraded to use Wi-Fi Protected Access (WPA). Computers configured to use dynamic WEP must be reconfigured for WPA. To find out more about WPA please visit the Wireless Security page.
The following documents contain instructions to reconfigure computers previously setup to connect to the CSU wireless network using WEP data encryption:
WPA has already been enabled on the wireless network. Users can reconfigure their computers to use WPA immediately.
The wireless network is currently running in “WPA migration mode.” This configuration allows for a gradual migration to the new encryption standard by allowing both WPA and dynamic WEP users to connect to the same network. As of December 29th, 2008 only users that have configured their laptops for WPA will be able to connect to CSU wireless.
Devices that were able to connect using LEAP or 802.1X-PEAP should be able to connect using WPA after simple configuration changes. In some cases, a driver update may be required. WPA is supported on computers running Windows XP Service Pack 2 or higher, Windows Vista, or Mac OS X 10.39 or higher. Network devices listed as Wi-Fi certified for WPA-Enterprise will work on the CSU wireless network. Look for WPA-Enterprise compliant adapters at the Wi-Fi Alliance website: http://certifications.wi-fi.org/wbcs_certified_products.php?lang=en
