DoIT activated its wireless WiscWorld network in the Sewell Social Science Building on Monday. You need to use your DoIT netid and password to connect. Instructions are at:

http://www.doit.wisc.edu/network/wireless/directions.asp

In order for visitors to connect to the wireless WiscWorld network, they need to use a DoIT guest netid and password. These accounts are free, but take one to two business days to set up and are only good for 31 days. This means that departments need to either plan ahead for visitors or request accounts every month just to have them on hand when needed. Go to the following web address to request a DoIT guest ID:

All problems with the wireless network should be reported to DoIT's help desk (264-HELP (4357)):
