How do I connect to the College’s Wireless (Wi-Fi) network?
The College of Saint Elizabeth provides students, faculty and staff access to its high speed wireless, WiFi network from a number of access points on campus, one being Mahoney Library. All desktop computers in the library should already be connected to the wired network, but If you are using your own laptop you will need to access the CSE Wi-Fi network in order to get on to the internet.
Your laptop will usually search for the best connection and attempt to connect to the network automatically. If it cannot make this connection, you may have to do this manually. The procedures for doing this will differ depending on the operating system being used by your computer.
For computers using Windows 7, click on the icon found in the bottom right corner of the screen made up of a series of small bars to open up a new window to connect to the network.
The wireless networks available are listed in this window. Those with colored bars offer a faster connection. Put your cursor over the CSE network to access the Connect button. Press the button to establish the network connection.
You may be asked to enter your username and password (the same username and password used for your cse email). You may also be asked to enter a Domain, which would be CSE. Enter the information and click the OK button.
If you are still unable to log onto the network, go to the wireless network instruction page at http://www.cse.edu/it/wifi/. You can also get to this page by entering wireless network in the search window found in the upper right side of every page on the College’s website.
Procedures for Windows 7, Windows XP, Mac, iPhone/iPad and Android are provided. If you continue to have problems, contact the Academic Computing Department help desk at ext. 4015.
