Guide to the AirNet Wireless Network
Getting Started

Walters State is implementing the use of a wireless network in several areas of the Main Campus in Morristown. These spots can be located by a sign that designates the area as a "WS AIRNET ZONE". By using this network users can use the Internet without having to connect the computer to a network port.



Currently wireless access is available in the following areas:
* College Center 1st floor lobby
* Humanities Lobby
* Outdoor Seating area between College Center and Humanities buildings
* Technology Building 1st floor area around TECH150
* Library 1st and 2nd floors
