Wireless Network Configuration Issues
Kettering University's wireless access points are set up to broadcast the SSID to client interface cards. If you cannot connect to the access point, check your wireless network configuration and set it up to accept a broadcast SSID. If you still can't connect, set the SSID manually to "KUW".
