Wireless service may be used by all faculty, staff and students and is available in the Academic Center, University Educational Center, Science Center and University Doctors' Pavilion in the following locations: Health Sciences Library, classrooms, break-out rooms, public areas and meeting rooms.
UMDNJ participates in the Dell University Program, which offers UMDNJ-SOM recommended laptops to students at reduced pricing. For more information and to purchase a laptop, please visit the Student Laptop page.
Wireless Network Cards
For those with existing laptops or if you purchase a laptop from another vendor, please ensure that your laptop has a compatible wireless network card. We recommend a wireless 802.11 /b/g, 54Mbps network card.
The University's wireless network supports those NIC (wireless) cards that are PEAP compliant. Cisco has created a web page where you can verify whether a device is compatible with the PEAP authentication. This page includes both individual NIC cards and notebooks with internal wireless NIC cards.
All Dell Latitude series D laptops with internal wireless NICs should be PEAP compliant with the appropriate drivers installed (Intel wireless or Dell TrueMobile wireless NICs).
