When connecting for the first time you will be prompted for your LU username and password after that you will be automatically connected to this network unless you change your password or your LU user account expires.

As with any network it is important to take security precautions which include ensuring:
- You have a personal firewall switched on
- You keep you device patched with security updates
- Leaving the wireless connection switched off until you actually need it; - safer that way and also saves battery life
- Taking care when opening attachments from people you don’t know and
- Not accepting any digital certificates you may be presented with when browsing a supposedly trusted site like a bank – it could be a phishing attack or a man in the middle attack
Note that the performance of a wireless network is affected by the number of users connected to any given wireless access point and your location in relation to the access point. So if you are in the library standing in between rows of metal shelving, for example, this may affect your connection! ITS also recommends that you invest in a laptop lock and use it - especially in areas like the Library.
