Clemson University wireless network enables Clemson University faculty, staff, and students to connect to the Internet when away from their home base. The university’s wireless network consists of approximately 2,300 access points providing convenient wireless access in almost all campus buildings, including every academic building and residence hall as well as the Hendrix Student Union and Cooper Library.
Similar to the wireless networks at Princeton University, the University of Washington and LSU, the Clemson University wireless network is intended as a supplement to, not a substitute for, the wired network. Although our wireless network is robust, the nature of wireless networking makes for a less stable connection than wired networking. For this reason, we recommend that you use a wired network connection when you are in your residence hall room, classroom, or office. Additionally, activities such as audio/video streaming and large file transfers are bandwidth intensive — attempting them on the wireless network could likely cause poor performance, as well as adversely impacting the wireless connections of other users sharing the access point.
