What is a wireless network?
A wireless network allows those without access to wired network ports access to online resources such as the Internet as well as the campus network. It does so using the 802.11b or 802.11g wireless network standard which allows communication between a device such as a laptop or smartphone and a wireless access point connected to the campus network.
What constitutes acceptable use of the wireless network?
See the UGA Policies on Use of Computers on the University Network at https://infosec.uga.edu/policies/aup.php. Although you may be on your laptop you are still using the University network. This means that you are bound by the acceptable use guidelines mentioned in the above link.
Keep in mind that these locations are simply where the wireless access points are located and that the signal may travel beyond those immediate areas.
How do I configure my wireless card to use the wireless network?
Most wireless cards will automatically detect the "PAWS Secure" wireless network. If your card must be set manually you should set your SSID to "PAWS Secure". If you are having trouble accessing the network, you can call or visit our help desk in the Law Library Annex(706-542-0895) or contact the UGA help desk directly(706-542-3106)
How do I access the wireless network once my wireless card has been configured properly?
Faculty, staff, and students with a MyID can complete a one-time setup of PAWS called PAWS Secure. PAWS Secure is the preferred connection for Faculty, Staff, and Students. This prevents having to log in each time to access the wireless network, and provides for a connection to the secured wireless network. There are two ways to configure your device to connect to PAWS Secure:
