You will be given a username and password so you can log on to the wireless network at Østfold University College or Fagskolen i Viken, which provides the broadband network.
All rooms have a cabled network socket.
We recommend that you bring your own network cable so you can connect to the internet before you have been given a username and password for the wireless network. You may want to bring your own router to use in your private room.
You can buy a network cable from the SiØ bookshop.
IT Operations accepts the temporary use of private wireless access points on the condition that these use channels 1, 6 or 11 in the 2.4Ghz band (IEEE 802111g) or any channel in the 5Ghz band.
If you use other channels, you will weaken the Eduroam wireless network.
If you are experiencing network problems, please try the following:
1. Check your device works in your unit
2. Check if your device works in your neighbour’s unit
3. Check your neighbour’s device is working in their unit
4. Check if your neighbour’s device works in your unit
If at least one device works in each unit, then the problem lies not with the network and the user must check their own device for errors.
If the problem persists, contact the University college’s IT Help services
