Common Questions

Can I access UB's administrative systems with eduroam?

You can connect to administrative services using eduroam Wi-Fi. If you need a VPN client to access those services, you will still need a VPN client for 2-factor authentication.

What do I do if I am getting bad signal strength?

This is usually due to interference that may occur from building walls, ceilings, metal, furniture, and even people. Moving your laptop closer to the nearest access point may improve your reception dramatically. If you continue to get poor signal, report the problem to the UBIT Help Center at 716-645-3542.

Is Web performance the same on the Wi-Fi network as it is on the wired network?

No, the connection speed on a Wi-Fi network can vary due to a number of factors, including: distance from a Wi-Fi access point; the number of simultaneous connections to a Wi-Fi access point; walls, metal objects, or other sources of interference and more. Wired connections are faster because you do not have to share bandwidth over your dedicated connection.
