Wireless Networks


Due to the Governor’s Honors Program that runs from June 17th until July 14th, the BerryGuest wireless network will be severely content filtered and only function between 6:00 a.m. and 11:30 p.m. for the duration of the program. Also, during this time the BerryOnboard wireless network will be disabled. If you need an EZConnect password during this time, please contact the Technical Support Desk at computing@berry.edu, ext. 5838 or (706) 238-5838.

For information regarding the Spring 2018 wireless updates please see our
wireless FAQ page.

Berry College has three different wireless networks available for use on campus. Each of these networks fulfills a specific purpose.

BERRY

Berry is the secured WiFi network available to students, faculty, and staff**. Information sent over this network is protected by the highest levels of encryption. This network also has access to the greatest amount of bandwidth, making it considerably faster than the other two networks. Students, faculty, and staff should use this network. Please scroll down for instructions for your particular device.

**Access to this network requires your Active Directory credentials. Your Active Directory username is the first part of your email address. (For example, if your email address is jsmith@berry.edu or john.smith@vikings.berry.edu, your Active Directory username is jsmith or john.smith, respectively.) These credentials are used for campus WiFi, campus computer login, and campus printing. You can reset your Active Directory password at react.berry.edu.

BERRYGUEST

BerryGuest is an open network available to guests of the college. BerryGuest has no authentication or encryption, so information sent over this network is not as protected as information sent over Berry or wired Ethernet connections. Students, faculty, staff should use Berry instead of BerryGuest.

EZCONNECT

EZConnect is designed for devices that need wireless internet access but don’t support the authentication required by the Berry network. Some examples of devices this network is designed for include the Microsoft Xbox, Sony Playstation, and Apple TV systems. EZConnect passwords are available via a self-service portal. Step-by-step instructions for requesting an EZConnect password via the self-service portal are available on this PDF.

If you are a student, faculty member or staff person and have difficulty connecting your device to EZConnect or Berry, please contact the Technical Support Desk at 706-238-5838 or computing@berry.edu for assistance.

IMPORTANT! Please turn off and do not use the wireless capability on personal printers. This causes interference with other wireless devices. You should be aware that if you add your printer to the wireless network, it will be available to anyone who connects to the network. Please use a USB cable to print to personal printers

Please note: Personally owned WiFi routers are not permitted on campus.
