At CEU, there are 3 levels of access for your wireless network connection, categorized below by the name of the given network (“SSID”). These networks are available in all CEU buildings.
CEU network SSID: CEU members can authenticate with their Novell username and password. This authentication is only necessary once per device, then the device will remember the settings for its lifetime, so it will not cause any further inconveniences for using Wi-Fi daily. Authenticated devices could have less strict firewall rules, and could have easier access to various resources (Novell network, SAP, UIS etc.) without VPN. Also we can guarantee sufficient bandwidth for dedicated devices and services on the network, resulting in better overall Wi-Fi performance.
eduroam network SSID: offers internet connectivity to the roaming users of all other eduroam member institutions, being available for visitors from Eduroam partners (and also for CEU community members in other partner institutions). Further info about Eduroam service here.
CEU Guest network SSID: for guest access (external library visitor, other external visitors, conference visitors etc.), we provide a separate guest network called ‘CEU Guest’. This is a more strictly firewalled network, where bandwidth is limited in order to provide sufficient Wi-Fi capacity to the members of CEU (users connected to the ‘CEU’ network).
Please note that for security reasons, the open access to Wi-Fi (LAPTOP_AREA and other similar networks in all buildings) has been discontinued.
