Wi-Fi set-up instructions for employees

The Shepherd wireless network is available to students, faculty and staff. The network is called registration.

It is available in all academic, administrative, common and residential buildings.

We are constantly trying to improve coverage, but there are some spots where there is not coverage or the coverage is weak. If you find a spot which has a weak connection or no coverage, please contact the User Support Desk so we are aware of it.

University Owned Laptop

University Owned Laptops allow access to the internet and shared disk space (network drives).

Note:The first time you access the wireless network, you are required to enter your credentials.

If you need your network drives (“M” and “N”), go to Start then All Programs. Select Wireless and click on Click to access your network drive.




Personally Owned Laptop smartphone

Employee owned laptops, tablets and smartphones must be registered to connect through our Wi-Fi network to the Internet. Personal devices are allowed access to the internet only. Windows systems require an active and up-to-date anti-virus system in order to pass the registration process.
