Wireless LAN / VPN
Would you like to use your own mobile devices (laptop, tablet, smartphone) in the Info center?
No problem, as all public rooms within the Info Center are equipped with Wireless LAN, provided and managed by ETH the IT Services. ETH Zürich uses the SSIDs eth (eth-5 und eth), public (public-5 und public) and eduroam (SSID = Service Set Identifier – network name). Both the SSIDs public and eth are on the 2.4 GHz band and the public-5 und eth-5 SSIDs are on the 5 GHz band. More information on the various wireless networks at ETH Zürich can be found at www.wireless.ethz.ch.
Several services provided at the ETH Zürich require the installation of VPN software, especially if you access services from your computer at home. Information and directions how to install the software can be found at www.vpn.ethz.ch.
If you have any questions when using the ETH WLAN and the installation of VPN software please contact the Servicedesk of ETH Zürich IT Services.
