Queen's Library and Queen's ITServices are very pleased to announce today's launch of a new, and much streamlined, procedure for Queen's students, faculty and staff who wish to connect their laptops to the Internet while working on campus. With this upgrade of the campus authentication server, the formerly cumbersome connectivity process has been reduced to four easy steps:
In addition, the server upgrade has enabled the connection period to be extended to four hours before re-authentication kicks in.
The new procedure applies to all laptop "docking stations" in the five campus libraries, as well as to all "wired" classrooms and common spaces across the University. It also applies to the Library's new wireless access, currently available only in the Law Library but soon to be extended to the Stauffer, Douglas, Education and Bracken Libraries.
