Campus Network Housing - Identifying Hospitality Access Points
Aruba Hospitality Access Points (HAPs) have been installed in the following residence halls: Adams, Barnard, Bradley, Chadbourne, Cole, Davis, Dejope, Kronshage, Leopold, Merit, Ogg, Phillips, Sellery, Slichter, Smith, Sullivan, Tripp, Waters, and Witte floors 1 and 6-11. Each residence hall room will have its own HAP, which functions as a Wireless Access Point (WAP) broadcasting UWNet wireless and UWNet Housing wireless. HAPs also have one or three ethernet jacks for wired connections.
Residents should not remove HAPs from the wall or obstruct HAPs with furniture or other large objects.
Each HAP will be clearly labelled with a unique identifier (as highlighted in the One-Ethernet Jack HAP picture), as in the examples below.
One-Ethernet Jack HAPs:
One-Ethernet Jack HAPs are found in Adams, Barnard, Bradley, Cole, Davis, Dejope, Kronshage, Leopold, Merit, Sellery, Slichter, Sullivan, Tripp, Waters, and Witte floors 1 and 6-11.
The unique identifier that is helpful when contacting the DoIT Help Desk is highlighted in red in the first picture under "Access Point Name". The data jack that is active is highlighted in the second picture, and is blue on the device.
Three-Ethernet Jack HAPs:
Three-Ethernet Jack HAPs are found in Smith, Ogg, Phillips, and Chadbourne.
Note that the indicator light has been disabled on all campus HAPs. If the light is not on, it is not an indication that there is anything wrong with the device.
