Access to the debate network requires a username and password.  (Note: They are case sensitive.  Be sure to note the difference between the number "1" and the letter "l" and the number "0" and the letter "o.")  You may pick up this information at the Cisco table in the Media Filing Center or at the IT Support Center. You will need to present your stamped Rate Sheet receipt to receive account information.

When signing in for the first time, please be sure to register using this link.

The Wireless Network within the credentialed area is "DEBATE08."

If you need to log out of the debate network but have already closed the logout window, you may log in and out here.

Individuals needing to connect networked devices such as printers should visit the Cisco table in the Media Filing Center. The network is not designed to support additional devices that extend service such as switches or hubs. These could adversely impact network performance and will not be allowed; however, every attempt will be made to support networked printers, copiers, and other peripherals required by campus visitors.

You are responsible for the security of the data you send over this wireless network. If you plan to transmit sensitive information, you should use secure application-level protocols (HTTPS, SSH, or VPN) or move to a wired network connection.
