Effective Saturday, March 14, OSU will move to a higher level of response that continues the essential operations of the university, but seeks to reduce the frequency of interactions among students, faculty, staff and visitors throughout all university campuses, centers, facilities and operations. Our focus is on continued university operations and social distancing.
Wireless access is available in all College of Engineering buildings:
The OSU Wireless network currently supports 802.11g standards and most locations also support 802.11a/n (include all of the College of Engineering). You will need to have a compatible wireless card in order to connect. Also required is a valid ONID account.
See the following link for information on how to connect to the OSU Wireless network:
If you have a proxy server setup in your web browser (or have it set to automatically detect the proxy), you may be unable to get to the login screen. It will appear to just hang. Disabling the proxy and restarting the web browser should take care of the problem.
Also, make sure your network card is set to get it's IP information from DHCP. That includes DNS servers.
Newer laptops sometimes include a button to turn off the wireless card to conserve battery life. Make sure the wireless card is activated.
There are two ways to for you to get to your files. Windows and Mac computers can mount network file systems. Also, Windows and Mac computers can use SFTP or SCP to copy files between the network and computer. Linux/Unix computers can use SFTP or SCP to copy files between the network and computer.
