Frequently Asked Questions

How do I access the campus wireless network?

CSI's wireless network can be accessed from any building on campus. To access the wireless network:

  1. Depending on the wireless device, Wi-Fi connectivity needs to be enabled. The Wi-Fi Utility installed on your wireless device will be able to automatically detect the Wireless Broadcast System available on campus (CSI-Student, CSI-Staff, CSI-Guest). Connect to the wireless system. (Please note: The  CSI-Guest network is provided for the convenience of visitors and guests. This network offers basic web browsing and is limited to specific services that are publicly available. It is not recommended that faculty or staff use this network since it will be more restrictive and slower than the CSI-Staff wireless network.)
  2. Once connectivity has been established, open an internet browser (Internet Explorer, Mozilla Firefox, Safari, etc…). The internet browser home page will be automatically directed to the Wireless Login Page.
  3. Login using the same username and password you use to login to campus computers. (By default, your username is your firstname.lastname and your password is your Csi+student# [# located under your picture on your ID card]). Visit the Student Helpdesk website for more information about computer login procedures. If you do not know your computer login, visit the OTS HelpDesk on first floor of the Library in front of 1L-109A or call 718.982.3695.
  4. After you log on to the wireless network your laptop will be scanned for malicious software, including viruses and trojans. If any malicious software is found, you will need to visit the OTS HelpDesk before being allowed to access the wireless network.
