What's the difference between HSUWireless and eduroam?

Printer-friendly version

The two wireless networks operate at the same speed and have the same coverage. The primary difference is that eduroam encrypts wireless data between you and the wireless access point, which enables faculty, staff, and graduate students to make use of additional campus wireline resouces such as department shares and printers. Additionally, once you're registered with eduroam, you have automatic wireless connections on any campus that has adopted eduroam. Access to HSUWireless is quick and simple to set up; HSUWireless-Secure requires that you register with the eduroam network.
