Network Policy

Security: The DLSWireless-Secure and RUWireless Secure networks provide the highest level of security utilizing WPA2 with AES-derived encryption. RUWireless Secure does not provide access to the DLS network domain.

Bandwidth: Wireless networking provides a limited amount of shared bandwidth for all users therefore a relaxed QoS (quality of service) restriction is imposed on all users of the DLS Wireless networks. This may limit the individual speed of a network connection or what streaming network services are available to help ensure that all users receive acceptable network performance.

Real-Time/P2P Protection: All users of the DLS Wireless networks are subject to limited Network traffic restrictions to known malware and peer to peer (torrent) sites. In accordance with the DLS and Rutgers University acceptable use policies users may forfeit access for repeated violations.

Wireless Guests

Temporary guest accounts for DLS Wireless are intended for guest presenters, speakers or other visiting faculty who require network access but are not members of the Rutgers Community. Please contact the administrative office of your hosting department within the DLS for these accounts.
