  •   Connect to the puvisitor wireless network. Configure your wireless network settings to access puvisitor.

 

Overview of PU Visitor Wireless

PU Visitor Wireless service operates as a network that is open and requires no registration. This is unique to the Princeton environment, and is not like the service one might utilize at a public facility like an airport or conference center. Specifically, since this service provides complete Internet access without any registration (unlike most airport/public facility networks which require one to register and/or pay to authenticate to the network), the protocols used by the service require that the computers using this network be configured to attach distinctly to the puvisitor network.
