Wi-Fi enhancements in the BioSciences building

As part of a programme of service improvement works, IS Services have carried out an upgrade of the Wi-Fi service in the BioSciences.  This upgrade provides greater connection speeds for most Wi-Fi users in this building.

Technically speaking, those using newer devices which support the 802.11n standard for wireless networking will be able to make use of the enhancement.  Those with older devices that do not support this standard will continue to be able to use Wi-Fi services in the building with no degradation in service.

Those already connected to College Wi-Fi and who are using Windows Vista, Windows 7 or Windows 8 will have to make a small adjustment in their Wi-Fi settings before making use of the improvements – see our instructions on how to update your Windows Wi-Fi settings.  Those using iOS (iPhone, iPad, iPod Touch) or Mac OS X will not have to carry out any changes to settings in order to take advantage of the higher speed.

The 802.11n standard will be introduced to all Wi-Fi enabled areas in College over the coming two years as part of a Mobility initiative, which includes a major enhancement of Wi-Fi services.

If you experience any issues or need further advice please contact the IS Services Helpdesk.
