If wireless is not available in the dorm my student will be living in, can he/she install a wireless router?

No. Installing a wireless router can not only cause connectivity issues within the ResNet, but once discovered will be blocked from the network.

With a new technology being implemented, Network Authenticated Login, each device will have certain criteria that must be met in order for that device to connect to the University’s Network. This login will consist of the students e-mail userID and e-mail password. This will help to eliminate issues caused by external devices, such as wireless routers, from causing problems on the University’s Networks.

NOTE: No Equipment other than a Personal Computer should ever be connected to the Troy University Network.
