DCS Wireless: quick guide

The DCS wireless provides 802.11a/g/n connectivity.

The SSID is: compsci

The WPA2 network key is available here.

After you have configured your device on the DCS wireless, please register it at wifi-reg.cs.toronto.edu (while on the wireless network). You will be prompted for your CSLab credentials.

If you need to access internal resources such as email or sandboxed machines, you will need to use the DCS VPN servers.

Who can use the DCS Wireless?

In order to use the DCS wireless network, you must be a member or a sponsored guest of the Department of Computer Science.

If you are a guest, we recommend consulting with your Point of Contact (PoC) for additional help.

How do I register my device?

After you have configured your device on the DCS wireless, please register it at wifi-reg.cs.toronto.edu (while on the wireless network). You will be prompted for your CSLab credentials.

If you have more than one device, you will need to register each one separately.

VPN

In order to access CSLab machines you must either use the DCS VPN (preferred solution) or the DCS Authenticating Gateway system.

Details on how to use the DCS VPN are available here.

Where is Wireless Available?

Wireless is available in every building commonly used by DCS. This includes the second and third floors of Pratt, the second, third and fourth floors of Sanford Fleming as well as the first, second, third, fourth, fifth and eighth floors of Bahen. In short we have endeavoured to make sure that wireless is available wherever members of the department have a tendency to be located, including the Bahen classrooms.
