Type of Service
Connectivity: You will find that the wireless network normally operates at slower speeds than the wired system – and the more it's being used in a particular area, the slower it may be. If you have a portable computer, we recommend that you use a standard wired connection when available because it will provide higher performance and better security. Also, you are discouraged from using or accessing any service that requires high amounts of bandwidth on the wireless network, which could slow performance for others using it in the same area. You should be considerate of other users and refrain from engaging in data-intensive operations, like uploading large files or streaming video.
Accounts: As a student, faculty, and staff of Saint Mary’s College of California all you need to have is your username and password for your Saint Mary's Account to gain access to the wi-fi available to you
