It is required that all students have a laptop for use in the program. Additionally, students are urged to have laptops with wireless capability for connecting to the wireless network in our classrooms.
Note: We also will offer standard wired connections to the university's high-speed network.
Most new laptops today are shipped with built-in wireless network cards. If your laptop does not have wireless capabilities, affordable wireless cards can be purchased at the DoIT Tech Store.
Lynksis 802.11b/g wireless card (~ $50)
Please note, wireless cards by other companies will work just well as long as they are "802.11B" or "802.11G" compliant (industry-standard protocols for wireless networks). The above card is simply a suggestion for your convenience.
The program's technical support staff will be available during the start of class to help configure your computer to use the wireless network. If you have any questions, please e-mail Bryan Husk or call (608) 265-0773.
