The Technology and Implementation
The Claremont Colleges, led by Harvey Mudd College,
are building an infrastructure
the will allow seamless network connectivity while roaming
the campuses with laptop computers and other wireless ready devices.
The equipment used is based on the IEEE 802.11b/g standard,
implemented by a hoard of network vendors. It is
a Direct Sequence Spread Spectrum signal in the 2.4GHz
While there are probably dozens of compatible cards
available, we have tested cards from the following
vendors and found them to work fine.
Card Registration and Coverage Areas
The wireless network is a Claremont wide network, that
is restricted to members of the Claremont Colleges community.
Until your network card is registered, you will not have
full access to the Internet.
The process to register your card varies somewhat, depending
on your local campus. See the appropriate campus link below.
Each participating campus provides and is responsible
for their own coverage, which varies considerably from
campus to campus. Follow the following links for more
- Setup the network IP configuration to use DHCP, or
"Get Address from Server"
- Use the wireless client program to set mode to 'Infrastructure'
- Use the wireless client program to set SSID to "ANY" or "CINE"
