UMSL uses the Bradford Networks NAC (Network access Control) to inspect a computer before it is allowed on the campus network. It ensures the system meets current security standards and has some basic security features like an up-to-date antivirus program and operating system patches. NAC is also used to control access to the campus wireless network "TritonNet". For more information on IT Security, please visit http://www.umsl.edu/technology/security

This allows wireless devices registered on Bradford Campus Manager to use TritonNet Wireless to connect directly to the internet. To get connected, you must register your computer with Bradford. The registration web page should open automatically the first time you try browsing the web from a wireless connection.
