Using a wireless LAN (WLAN = Wireless Network) you work wirelessly with your mobile devices in the campus network. We have over 50 access points installed which use the 802.11a / b / g / n standard. There are various WLANs with different names (SSIDs) which have all different functions:

  • HNEE campus (WPA2 encryption, log-on on setting up, for access to server and Internet)
  • HNEE guest (without encryption, registration on a website required, for web / mail access  and the Internet)
  • HNEE.de only (no encryption, no registration, HNEE websites only)
  • HNEE PC1 and PC2 HNEE and HNEE PC3 (WPA2 encryption, selected MAC addresses and one-time log-on, for access to HNEE server and Internet)

When you connect, different network names (SSIDs) are displayed. The easiest way to connect is with  'HNEE Guest' or 'HNEE.de only'. These are open networks (note: Passwords could be intercepted on unencrypted websites!).
