Wireless and Technology
There is wireless everywhere on campus. Here are the available wireless networks and their appropriate use:
- KSC Secure. This is your network to connect to with your computer, phone or other mobile device.
- KSC Device. This network is for your Smart tv, game console, etc. This is NOT for your laptop, phone or other mobile device.
- KSC_Guest – This is only for non-KSC students or employees. This network provides limited access, so do not connect to it.
To connect your computer to the KSC_Secure, you are required to have the following installed on your computers:
- KSC approved anti-virus software.
- Network Access Control (NAC) Software - Students will be prompted to download this software when connecting to the KSC wireless network for the first time. The NAC protects the network by making sure the computer has anti-virus software installed and running and Windows Updates turned on.
- Select the KSC_Secure wireless network.
- Select “Trust” on the certificate that may appear.
- Enter your NetID and your NetID password
If you have any issues connect to KSC_Secure or KSC_Device, please contact the HelpDesk to resolve the issue.
Note: Personal wireless routers or access points are not allowed on campus. These devices create interference with the wireless network, reducing network performance and impacting surrounding students.
