WLAN access


The Faculty runs an area-wide WLAN (Wireless Local Area Network; also called WiFi). Instructions for setting up the wireless connection are below.


It is mandatory that an updated virus scanner and the latest Windows updates are installed on your notebook (use Automatic Updates if unsure). We suspend users, who don't comply with this.
