Hotspots are locations where wireless service is available to mobile users
for Internet access. Hotspots are available around most of the campus. Anyone
using a laptop equipped with a wireless interface will be able to access the
Internet in most areas on campus.
An example process is as follows:
Built-in Windows XP Wireless Management software:
- Right click on the wireless network connection in the lower right of
your desktop (by the clock)
- Select View Available Wireless Networks from the shortcut menu.
- This will bring up a box showing all available wireless networks
within range of you computer. If you do not see any available wireless
networks, click on the Refresh network list on the left side of that
- Click on BC3NET-HOTSPOT
- Click Connect - You will get a message stating that you are about
to connect to an unsecured network...
- Select Connect Anyway
Specific software for your card:
