Delaware Valley College provides both wired and wireless network services on campus.
An interactive Wireless Network Coverage Map shows the location of wireless service areas on campus. Wireless network coverage is continually being expanded.
You will find details on how to connect your computer equipment to the College’s network on the Network Connection Page.
The College has two wireless networks. The "1896" network is the encrypted network for use by students and employees and the "Guest" network, which has very limited internet access. The "1896" network uses your network/emails user name and password for authentication. You may need to make some manual setting changes to connect to the "1896" network. Directions can be found on the Campus Portal.
A note about gaming and other web applications on the network:
Some students would like to play online games or use certain applications while they are taking a break from their studies. Unfortunately, we are not able to accommodate every game or application for various reasons. There may be reasons why a certain game will not work. A lack of available bandwidth may also negatively impact your gaming experience.
Details about what web applications and games are allowed is on the Campus Portal.
You should also know that online games and web applications will not be allowed to adversely affect the network. Regular Internet traffic, which is likely to be used for academic purposes, will always have priority over gaming. Internet use which is not academic by nature is not guaranteed to operate correctly on the Delaware Valley College network.
As always, if you have questions about the network or wireless connectivity, please feel free to contact the Technology Services Help Desk at 215.489.HELP (4357).
