Prohibited Technology

Page Last Updated: Thu Jun 23 09:55:03 EDT 2016   


The following devices are prohibited from use on campus.  Using these in a crowded wi-fi environment like the campus and housing networks leads to interference in wi-fi connections for other devices.  Therefore we ask that these technologies not be used on campus.  When they are detected, you will be asked to disable the wi-fi portion of the device.

  • Personal wireless routers (and/or activating the personal hotspot on a mobile device)-STRICTLY PROHIBITED
  • Wireless printers (these are a leading cause of wifi issues within the dorm/residence hall setting)
  • Some wireless streaming devices such as Roku and AppleTV (these can be connected via network cable, but not wireless)
  • Xbox 360 controllers (the Xbox 360 also features wireless connectivity of accessories via a proprietary 2.4 GHz radio system. This is mainly used to connect the official wireless controllers, but is also used for other devices such as the wireless racing wheel and wireless headsets. With the exception of some rhythm game controllers, and the Fanatec CSR wheel, this wireless connectivity is limited to first-party Microsoft accessories. We encourage you to being game controllers that plug-in to the console.)
  • Cordless phones

If you have any questions about these technologies or any other questions regarding usage of devices on the campus wi-fi network, please contact the Help Desk.
