Upcoming Wireless Network Changes

Over the next 6 weeks, Information and Library Services will be making the following changes to the Bates wireless network.

On Wednesday, June 19th, the “BatesGuest” wireless network will be discontinued and replaced with a network called “Bates Visitor“. This should only be used for guests of the College to quickly and easily connect to our wireless network.

Also on Wednesday, June 19th, a new wireless network named “Bates” will be introduced. This will be the new wireless network that all Bates faculty, staff and students should use. Instructions on how to connect to “Bates” will be sent out on Wednesday, June 19th.

If your computer, smart phone or tablet currently connects to “BatesGuest“, the instructions will walk you through the process of connecting your device to “Bates“.

The “BatesSecure” wireless network will remain in existence until Wednesday, July 31 at which point it will be turned off. Please be sure to switch from “BatesSecure” to “Bates” before July 31st.

If you need assistance with this process or have any questions, please contact Help Desk Services.
