We offer two wireless networks. The Public Access network is intended for guests visiting the university. It only allows access to web sites on the Internet. You will not be able to access the JU network nor any of our websites. The second, DolphinNet, is for our students, alumni, faculty and employees. It gives you the same access to our network as a wired connection. This means you can connect to your H: drive, other shared drives and printers. You also have full access to the JU websites.
To assist you in connecting to DolphinNet, we have set up a website with instructions. If you are running Windows XP or Vista, there is even some software that will automatically set up your computer. You do not have to be a Local Administrator on your computer to set up a wireless connection.
