EGR Wi-Fi uses access points (APs) supporting the 802.11a/b/g/n protocols on both 2.4 and 5 gigahertz in all engineering facilities. This means better signal, faster speeds, and the ability to use WPA2 wireless encryption for higher security. It reduces the chance of interference in some situations, especially if using a more modern wireless client that supports 5 gigahertz.
To get the maximum benefit from the new EGR Wi-Fi, contact the DECS Support Office at firstname.lastname@example.org or 517-353-8891 to find out if your device can support 5 gigahertz using 802.11n. WPA2-Personal encryption may also be used by using the "EGR Wi-Fi WPA2" SSID and the passphrase of "engineering."
