Wireless Networking

Kansas State Polytechnic offers wireless connections for K-State students, faculty, staff and guests.  Read the Wireless Local Area Network Policy governing wireless computing at K-State.

Guest Access

Campus visitors can use the KSU Guest wireless network, which does not require an eID/password. The guest network does not encypt traffic (it's not secure), is restricted to basic web-browsing protocols and does not have access to K-State enterprise systems such as K-State Online, KSIS, HRIS, and FIS.

Student / Staff / Faculty Access

Kansas State Polytechnic offers secure wireless connections for students, faculty and staff using WPA2 Enterprise encryption. Two secure wireless networks are available:

  • KSU Wireless (for all K-Staters)
  • KSU Housing (for students living in on-campus housing)

When connecting to the secure wireless network, you will be prompted for a username and password.  Use your K-State eID/password to log in.  

The first time you connect, you may also be prompted to accept a security certificate.  To accept the certificate and connect to the secure wireless network, click "Connect" or "Continue".  If desired, you can verify that the certificate is valid by checking the following information:
