1 Wireless Network The back story of our Wireless (reading will help you understand what is going on in the building): At Robeson we have a non-broadcasting wireless network. This means that if you are using a laptop (or any wireless device) and you look for available wireless networks, you will not see our network listed. In order to connect to the network you must manually enter the connection settings for your computer/device. The steps to complete to get connected vary depending upon the operating system of the computer or for the type of device you are using. Wireless networks that most people are accustomed to use a network name (referred to as the SSID) and a network key (or password). This setup is designed to prevent unwanted computers/devices from connecting to the wireless network. Our wireless network does not use this method of authentication. We use an even more secure method for authenticating devices on the network. Each device must install a small file, known as a certificate, which is then used in the authentication process. To gain access to the network you have to enter a legitimate username and password. This means there is no single password to gain access to the wireless network. You have to possess a CPS account in order to log in with the certificate. So from a network security stand point, this method is far more secure because individual user accounts can be disabled and that person would no longer be able to access the network. If we had a single network key, and we wanted to deny access to a single user, we d have to change the network key, which would affect everyone else on the network. Having a user authentication method does have a couple drawbacks however. First, if you are not a CPS employee and/or do not have a CPS user account you cannot access the wireless network unless someone else logs in for you (Which would violate the purpose of having of individual user accounts, plus this account info isn t always saved permanently so this may be a temporary fix). Second, you have to have an updated operating system (at least Windows XP service pack 3) to be compatible. Finally, some users have experienced issues authenticating their user names despite having successfully logged in to CPS assets before. As a solution to the aforementioned issues with the wireless network, we have a secondary wireless network which uses the older single network password authentication method. This is our guest network that is intended to satisfy the internet needs of any guest that visits our building. Of course there is a small downside to using the guest network, you cannot access any CPS website or application (such as IMPACT). By isolating guests away from CPS assets security is maintained, but guests can access the rest of the Internet freely. Having said all that, I will share with you my experience with both networks (CPS and guest). In some cases I have experienced connectivity issues. I have witnessed computers configured correctly unable to connect to the wireless network. I have experienced a laptop that had previously been connected for several days in a row, mysteriously being unable to connect on a random day that follows that string of days being connected. I have knowledge of a user whose user account simply does not work, yet it works when using IMPACT or Gradebook (i.e. her user name and password are correct but the wireless authentication fails every time as if her information was incorrect). I have seen a computer that was working on the CPS network, then being attached to the guest network and not being able to reconnect to the CPS network again. Ultimately, when the system works, it works fine. When it doesn t, there doesn t seem to be any rhyme or reason for the failure. In cases like these, all you can hope to do is to delete the settings and try again.
2 INSTRUCTIONS FOR CONNECTING TO THE GUEST NETWORK (SSID: CPS51608) ON WINDOWS SYSTEMS Remember, this setup will not give you access to any CPS website or online application. Windows XP users: 1.
