Bring Your Own Device

Electronic devices that support 802.1x authentication will work in our environment.  Examples of compatible devices are:
  • iPhones, iPads, or iPod Touch
  • Android phones or tablets running Android 3.0 (Honeycomb) or later
  • Blackberry phones (BlackBerry OS 4.6 and up)
  • Kindle Fire tablets
  • Laptops running Windows XP SP3 or later or OS X

At this time, Kindle eReaders, Nooks and Nabi-brand tablets are not compatible with our wireless network (as they do not yet support 802.1x). These devices may be used but will not have internet access.
