Wireless Networking Information
This page gives detailed information about connecting to Baylor's wireless network called AIRBEAR WPA2.
AIRBEAR WPA2 not for Office Use
AIRBEAR WPA2 was originally deployed to cover classrooms and common areas where students may gather. It is not intended to be a substitute for the wired network connection available in all faculty and staff offices, and therefore, is not guaranteed in those areas. Wireless, as currently deployed, is less secure and connectivity is less reliable, much like a cell phone. The wireless network could also have an adverse affect on the backup process. Although faculty and staff may experience some wireless signal in their office, this is based on their proximity to a classroom or common area. ITS requests that all employees use the wired connections while in their offices to ensure better reliability, security and backups.
