Wireless Cards

Currently, use of the CSUSM wireless network requires a wireless card that is IEEE 802.11b (11 MB) or IEEE 802.11g (54 MB) compliant. For a listing of certified card providers please visit the Wireless Ethernet Compatibility Alliance Web site's list of certified products. Our campus recommends the IEE802.11g (54 MB) for future bandwidth.  At this time, the CSUSM wireless network utilizes 802.11b/g access points that do not support 802.11a. Several vendors offer wireless cards that support both 802.11a and 802.11b. Those cards will work on the CSUSM wireless network. The campus will upgrade the wireless network to newer standards as they become more standardized and cost-effective.
