Lost Connectivity – Wireless Network
The Closer You Get, The More Reliable The Signal
Wireless networking is provided through radio transmitters, and radio signals, like those of FM and AM radio and satellite television, are subject to interference for a variety of reasons. These range from signal strength to barriers such as walls and furnishings, to other microwave signals and weather conditions.
Even the frequency used by a microwave oven or a wireless telephone can disrupt nearby Wi-Fi access.
Proximity to the local Wi-Fi hub is also important. Users who are at the fringe of a hub’s signal strength are at risk of losing the signal, as are users who pick up a weakened signal out-of-doors. Some of our hubs are designed to cover entire buildings, however others may be tuned to provide service to a specific room only. The campus links on this page will take you to a list of all hub locations.
For more information, please go to the Wireless Network FAQ.
