We are pleased to announce the deployment of the new 802.11a wireless service in EECS. 11a offers a much higher link speed (54mb as opposed to 11mb for 802.11b), less interferences, and the possibility of stronger encryption.
We have tested only a limited number of 802.11a devices, so it is possible that your 802.11a network device is not fully supported.
Due to limited staffing, we regret to say that we might not be able to get to your specific device immediately.
We know IBM and Dell laptops with built-in 802.11a work, as well as Avaya 802.11a cards (you must install the driver for this).
If you have problem using 802.11a, please let us know what kind of configuration you have. 802.11b service remains your best alternative.
EECS guest wireless will stay on 802.11b.
