The GWDG provides the network infrastructure for Göttingen University, the Max-Planck-Institute and partly also for other scientific institutes in and around Göttingen. This includes the wireless networks eduroam and GoeMobile, which are integrated into the main network infrastructure GÖTNET. It provides mobile users with internet access in many locations and can also be used for lectures and conferences.
In the Göttingen Wi-Fi the following networks (SSIDs) are available:
Available on all sites with 802.11 b/g and 802.11n (5 GHz), encrypted with WPA2. Login with an eduroam-compatible account.
Available on all sites (except the University Hospital) unencrypted with 802.11 b/g and 802.11n (5 GHz) for fast access with up to 300 MBit/s. Login via the WebPortal and encryption possible with VPN. 802.11n will be chosen automatically from your WLAN device or has to be chosen manually in the program of your driver if necessary.
This Wi-Fi network (802.11 b/g) is intended for devices which have problems with the WebPortal login. In this unencrypted Wi-Fi network a login is only possible through VPN. This network is available at all sites where GoeMobile is available. The SSID is hidden and must be preselected in the device.
