PittNet(Wireless): Connect with Mobile Devices or Linux

Pitt IT cannot provide instructions to configure Linux devices, smartphones, or other mobile devices to connect to Wireless PittNet or Wireless-PittNet-Fast. We do provide the information you will need to configure your device to connect:

  • Network SSID
  • Security Type
  • Encryption Type
  • Authentication Method

Compatible Devices

  • Personal Digital Assistants (PDAs)
  • Smart phones
  • iPhones
  • Laptop computers running the Linux operating system
  • Laptop computers that use a third-party wireless client (for example, an Intel client or a Gateway client)

Incompatible Devices

  • Bluetooth equipment
    Bluetooth uses a different type of wireless signaling than Wireless PittNet. Both exist in the 2.4 GHz frequency range, however, so using them in the same location may negatively affect the performance of the wireless network.
