Wireless Access

Thiel College expanded its wireless access infrastructure to nearly 350 access points in summer 2014. Wireless access is now available in all residence halls, along with administrative and academic buildings on campus.

Setting up your wireless connection in residence halls

To access wireless in the residence halls, you will need to add the wireless connection to your computer.

  1. Download the zip file to get started.
  2. Save the zip file to your desktop, then right-click the file and select “Extract All…”
  3. Leave the default settings in the box and click the “Extract” button.
  4. Once a window appears, double-click the file named “imp-wireless”.
  5. A black window will flash on the screen for a moment while the wireless profiles are imported.
  6. Once connected, you will be prompted to enter your network username and password.

Once that is complete, you should be able to connect to the Thiel wireless networks. If you run into any issues setting up your connection, contact the I.T. Solution Center at x4000.

Wireless in other buildings

The above directions apply to residence halls, but other buildings will still use the legacy Thiel Aruba access points.
