Supported wireless devices

Supported wireless devices

To connect to the university network, a wireless device will need to support 802.11g or better.

802.11n and 802.11ac (Wifi5) 802.11ax (WiFi) capable devices are highly recommended.

802.11b wireless is no longer supported.

Unsupported wireless devices

There are many wireless-capable devices on the market and you may be considering what device(s) you want to purchase. It is very important to note that not all wireless-capable devices are supported on the Salem State network.

Access to the wireless network requires a device with an 802.11 network adapter supporting either A, G, N, AC, or AX and wireless services active in the location.

A device is not supported and may not work on campus if the device:

  • does not have an ethernet port;
  • does not have a browser installed; and,
  • does not have WPA-2 Enterprise security settings.
  • requires the ability to "cast" or stream to another device on the network.

Examples of unsupported devices include, but are not limited to:

  • Chromecast
  • GoPro HERO camera
  • SONOS
  • wireless printers
