Students in the residence halls will need to configure their devices for the "Resnet XX" access points.

Access 40 and ResNET 40 - The Most Secure

Access 40 offers the highest level of security currently available on the Missouri State campus, and offers support for many hardware and software combinations, including OS X and Windows Vista SP1. Windows XP SP3. Windows XP builds prior to SP3 cannot connect to Resnet 40 with the default Windows client; however, machines with Intel brand wireless adapters can download Intel PROSet/Wireless software, which will make it possible for unpatched versions of Windows XP to connect to Resnet 40. - Wireless authentication for this network is handled by PEAP encryption using the MS-CHAPv2 protocol. The data encryption method of this network is "WPA2/AES-CCMP"

Access 30 and ResNET 30 - Security Plus Compatibility
