Q. I would like more information about the university wireless and network.
Trine University has wireless available in all academic and administrative buildings, student villas, and in common areas in the apartments and units. If students wish to connect a computer to the network there are a number of ways to complete this. A student can bring/purchase an ethernet cable for their bedroom to connect to their personal computers (in all dorms but Reiners). Alternatively, wireless access is available in all residential buildings. Use either Thunder2.4 or Thunder5 WiFi networks in the dorms, residence halls, Villas, etc. The password is TrineThunder.
Students should use up-to-date anti-virus software in order to access the university network and the Internet. University recommended anti-virus software includes Symantec/Norton, McAfee, Sophos, Microsoft Security Essentials, Avira, Avast, or other Free Security programs.
For further questions or issues about Security/Anti Virus programs please contact the Help Desk.

- I have used McAfee myself and found it not as good as Microsoft Security Essentials.
