TNS provides the SDSU community with a centrally-managed wireless network. The network uses the 802.11a/g/n/ac Wi-Fi standards. TNS is continually working on improving our wireless infrastructure. There is no charge to connect to the campus wireless network at this time. 

Get Wireless Access Points Installed in Your Office, Suite or Building

Have your datacom coordinator submit a Network Service Request. TNS will do a site survey and determine the optimal placement of new access points if needed.

Wireless Network Card

Departments may buy wireless network cards from any standard university source or computer store.  TNS does not sell wireless network cards.

Recommend / Supported Wireless Cards

We recommend wireless devices or network cards that are 802.11a/g/n/ac Wi-Fi compliant. Cards that support both the 2.4Ghz and 5Ghz wireless bands are strongly recommended as the 5Ghz band offers better performance in dense deployments. We recommend purchasing devices with “AC” radios to benefit from the newer access points.

Policy and Procedures

The CSU Responsible Use Policy (RUP) is strictly enforced. Failure to follow policies will result in your loss of campus network access and may include civil and/or criminal prosecution. Use of the SDSU network implies that you have read, understood and agree to comply with the CSU RUP.
