EWU Wireless Accounts
The EWU wireless network is based on the IEEE 802.11a/b/g/n/ac standard, which operates in the 2.4GHz and 5GHz license-free frequency bands. We offer wireless data connections at speeds of up to 54Mbps with 802.11a/g and 300Mbps with 802.11n as well as speeds up to 1.3Gbps with 802.11ac.
The only item you need to connect to the wireless network is a device with 802.11a/b/g/n/ac wireless capabilities. When purchasing a wireless card, make sure the card is 802.11a/b/g/n/ac compliant or Wi-Fi certified. In addition, make sure that you install the latest drivers. Visit the manufacturer's website for information about the latest drivers.
