BGSU Wireless Networks

Use this page for information on connecting to the BGSU wireless network(s).

BGSU recommends a secure wireless network (secureBG) that does not require consistent log on for current faculty, staff and students.

Wireless Guest Access allows users to connect to the BGSU wireless network for a limited period of time, as a guest. Wireless Guest Access supports three different types of accounts: Current Faculty/Staff/Students, Guest and Sponsored Guest accounts. Each account is specifically tailored to the user's access/timing needs.

BGSU is also part of the eduroam network. Eduroam allows users from participating academic institutions to securely access the internet at any other eduroam participating locations using their home institution's email address and password. Visitors to our campus from participating organizations can log on to eduroam campus by searching for wireless networks and selecting the available eduroam option.

PCI Network (Cash Registers)

All BGSU cash registers require a connection through the PCI Network. The BGSU PCI Network refers to the Payment Card Industry (PCI) isolated network used for all devices associated with credit card payments at BGSU. The PCI has created a data security standard that everyone who accepts credit card payments must comply with. As a part of that standard, devices that accept, transfer or process credit card payments must be isolated from everything else on a network. Thus, any BGSU affiliate wishing to set up a cash register in a location that has not previously been setup on this private network must request a temporary PCI jack.
