UVa Wireless Network
Connecting Wirelessly to the UVa Network
Wireless at UVa
Wireless coverage is generally available in most areas of UVa Grounds, but just as with mobile phones, you may encounter a few dead spots.
Wireless (also known as “Wi-Fi”) works better for simpler tasks, so save video-conferencing, audio or video streaming, and other very large file transactions for your wired, Ethernet connection. A hard-wired wall connection remains your main access to the Internet and generally provides more bandwidth and dependability.
ITS does NOT recommend using a wireless connection when dealing with critical information or systems. How to plug in and use an Ethernet cable instead.
