Connecting to the Network

  • Campus LAN - All standard Windows and Macintosh desktops and laptops provided and supported by UW Bothell Information Technologies are by default connected to the campus's Local Area Network (LAN). This connection via Ethernet cables to network interface cards is capable of data communication speeds of at least 100 MB/sec. They are also logically attached to a Windows Active Directory domain for authentication to local enterprise resources. Personal laptops and other devices brought to campus may be set to dynamically receive configuration information and access the Internet at any free network port on campus (marked with a yellow "ENET" sticker).
  • Wireless Network - UW Bothell provides a ubiquitous wireless access network for the primary student buildings of UW Bothell. These buildings include all floors of UW1, UW2, LB1, LB2, LBA, and the Truly House. Current maximum network speeds for ideal connections to this network are up to 600 Mbits/sec (802.11n standard).
