Change to Network Registration Process - One fewer step for wireless network access!

Wireless or Wi-Fi users no longer need to restart or turn off then on again their wireless adapters after Network Registration to use the Amherst network. You can start using the network immediately after registering. This applies to Amherst employees and students as well as guests. Visitors to our campus using the eduroam wireless access service do not have to Network Register at all.
