Where can I access the wireless network?
Bismarck State College has wireless access available in all buildings on campus, as well as the Mandan Campus and the Allied Health Campus.  In the BSC Dormitories (Lidstrom Hall, Mystic Hall, Swensen Hall and Werner Hall) you will see "BSC Dormitories" for the wireless network, and in the rest of the buildings you will see the "BSC Wireless" network.

How do I connect to the wireless network on campus?
You will first need to have claimed your NDUS Account before you can log onto the network.  

If you have already claimed your account, you use that  same login and password to log onto the wireless network on campus.

The first time you connect to the wireless network with your computer, you will be prompted to download and install a policy key which checks to make sure you are running current antivirus, are not running peer to peer file sharing programs, etc. See the documentation below for detailed instructions on installing the policy key.  
Note:  You must have administrative rights on your computer to be able to install the policy key.

Mobile devices (such as smartphones and iPads) will be prompted to authenticate onto the network, but do not require a policy key.
