MarjonWiFi

This connects to an open unsecured wireless network, rather like in an Internet Cafe or Fast Food outlet.  

Authentication Screen

You will need a Marjon username (Library card number) and password to logon to the wireless network.   The system will then check you are allowed to access the Marjon resources and connect to the Internet.  

Campus Coverage

Marjon operates an 802.11ac wireless network for students and staff.   While coverage is extensive not all of the campus may have a strong signal, therefore if you find that there is a work area where the signal is not strong enough to connect to the Internet please contact Computing Services so we can fine tune the access points or fit more as required to provide suitable coverage.

Please also note that the access points are NOT compatible with any domestic wireless system as the points MUST be managed by a specialised controller and they are therefore of no use to anyone but wireless users in Marjon. Therefore, please do not remove them for any reason.

Consoles and TVs

The MarjonWifi network can also connect gaming devices and TVs that require some additional configuration to enable them to access the Internet. If you have one of these devices, let us know the MAC address and we can teach the system to accept your device.    Please contact the helpdesk ComputingServices@marjon.ac.uk for more information

Security

When connected to the wireless network, you are required to have both an anti-virus and anti-spyware package installed and recently updated on your system.  If you do not have any security software on your system, the following are suggested:

Apple Mac http://www.iantivirus.com
Microsoft Windows http://windows.microsoft.com/en-GB/windows/security-essentials-download
