Wireless access is available to Washburn students, faculty, and staff in the Mabee Library. Access the Internet, campus network, online classes, homework, and the Library's book and article databases from your own laptop computer by connecting to an Ethernet jack or via Wireless card access in the library. The only hardware required is a Wireless card (an 802.11b/g compliant Wireless network card) or Ethernet card (any brand name) in your computer and a standard “straight-through” Ethernet cable to connect the laptop to the port.
Internet access is available as long as the laptop has TCP/IP software installed and is configured for DHCP (Dynamic Host Configuration Protocol). Our Internet service instantly provides an Internet Protocol (IP) address to the laptop without any manual configurations. Ethernet access is available on all floors that have wall outlets with a white faceplate and jack. (Note: Any DHCP port with a RED tag on it means the port is temporarily out-of-service).
There is a new registration system to gain access to the Washburn Wireless network in a matter of minutes without requiring paperwork to be submitted to ITS (Information Technology Services). The new system is able to automatically detect the MAC address of your Wireless device. The first time you try to connect from any Wireless device and open a Web browser, you will be prompted to register that device for use on Washburn's Wireless network. You will need to know your MyWashburn username and password to register your device(s) for the Ethernet and/or Wireless network every semester.
