Wireless Internet @ University of Missouri-St. Louis
By using the wireless network, you will be able to access your e-mail, MyGateway, and other related internet services without being confined to a computer lab. Wireless network access is available on campus at some locations. You can see availble wireless access at http://www.umsl.edu/technology/wireless/
NEW! - Floor plans for buildings with wifi access areas colored green.
To connect to our wireless network, you will need a laptop with a wireless network adapter that supports 802.11b and/or 802.11g standards. If your laptop does not have a built-in wireless adapter, you may purchase a wireless adapter card from the University Bookstore or an electronics retail store.
If you have any questions or problems, please call 314-516-6034 or you may bring your laptop to 211 Lucas Hall.

UMSL Student Ethernet
Ethernet is an “always on” connection that provides network access at speeds considerably faster than a dial-up connection. For students in the Residential Halls, this service is included with the room and board fees. For University Meadows residents, there is a per-semester charge, billed through your student account with the Cashier’s Office.
This may be a built-in port, an add-on card, or a USB adapter. If the adapter was not pre-installed, please follow the adapter’s included instructions to properly install the adapter and driver software. If you have problems installing your adapter, you must contact the manufacturer; the Technology Support Center at UMSL cannot support your computer or its hardware.
You may use a Category 5, 5e, or 6 cable. This is often called a patch cable. A crossover cable will not work, nor will an ordinary telephone cord. You can purchase this cable at the University Bookstore.
You will need to enter your SSO ID. If you have not looked up this information, please visit:
Residential Hall Students: To activate your Ethernet connection, contact the Technology Support Center at 314-516-6034. The port should be activated during your call.
University Meadows Residents: Complete the Information Access Services form linked off of http://www.umsl.edu/technology/phones. You will be contacted when your data port is activated.
