Wireless network in Newman Library upgraded

Wireless networking in the libraries

  • You need to be registered to use the wireless network. It's free for most students, faculty, and staff, but if you have not registered, no form of connecting to the network will work for you.
  • You'll need a network password. That's a different password from your Gmail password and PID password. That password is also useful if you want to connect using the campus VPN.
  • There is no open public wireless at Virginia Tech. If you are not affiliated with the university, you are welcome to use our public computers, located on each floor.
