What devices does the Post Academic Wireless support
The Post Academic Wireless network is encrypted with WPA2-Enterprise. This means that it’s a good deal more complex than your home Linksys router!
You must have a Post University username and password in order to connect to the Post Academic Wireless, and your device must support WPA2-Enterprise. Keep in mind, WPA2 is different from WPA2-Enterprise!
What CAN connect to the Post Academic Wireless?
- Almost any computer purchased since 2006 should support WPA2-Enterprise. Some older computers or network cards may not support it, but any modern computer will work fine!
- iOS, Android, and Surface tablets
- Kindle Paperwhite and newer
What CAN’T connect to the Post Academic Wireless?
- Windows XP! Windows XP is not allowed to connect to the Post Academic Wireless. Windows XP is no longer supported by Microsoft, and it is considered a security risk to continue running.
If you’re in doubt, try searching Google for “product name WPA2 Enterprise” or stop by the Help Desk and we’ll be glad to help you figure it out!
Game consoles like Playstation or Xbox and Smart TVs do not natively support WPA2-Enterprise!
Instead of connecting the device to the Post Academic Wireless, you’ll need to connect it to the network labeled Student Entertainment Devices.
Game consoles, Apple TV’s, and Roku’s—anything with an ethernet port—can also be connected via ethernet if desired.
