Wired and Wireless Access

Frostburg State University provides a fast and secure fiber-optic computing network. Both wired and wireless connections are available. All students, faculty, and staff can connect to the network. Visit the FSU Network Accounts & Access page for more information about the FSU network.

Wired Network Access

  • As a resident student, you want to start computing right away.  Residence halls have a wireless access point installed in every room.  Each access point also has three wired ports available on the bottom of the access point. You will need to bring a computer and an Ethernet cable to connect to the wired network port in your room. You will need to provide your FSU username and password to gain access to the network.  For wireless requirements, see Wireless Network information below.

    As a faculty or staff member, someone in the Office of Information Technology will set up your network access. You may also request assistance through the IT Help Desk.

Wireless Network Access

The university has a wireless network in addition to the standard wired network.  Faculty, staff and students can connect to the university’s wireless network by connecting to  WiFi@FSU and entering your provided network credentials.

Computers must be equipped with a wireless network adapter (802.11 g/n/ac) to connect to the wireless network.  We recommend purchasing a dual band wireless adapter (2.4GHz/5GHz) as this will enhance your wireless computing experience.

Device Registration
To use devices such as televisions, gaming systems or other devices that do not have a web browser on our network, you must first register these devices.  Once registered you can use the psk@FSU wireless network or you may plug the device in to the port on the bottom of the access point mounted in your room.
