RAMConnect Wireless

The Office of Information Technology is pleased to announce RamConnect. This is the new security authentication solution we are introducing to provide secure access and availability of wireless Internet access (Wi-Fi) for campus users, powered by SafeConnect. RamConnect is part of our strategic initiative to protect computers on the WSSU network (wireless and wired) from viruses, spyware, malware, and operating system security vulnerabilities.

Due to compliance requirements, the need to improve safety measures for Wi-Fi and mobile devices, and known Internet hacking and malware threats to our campus users, this solution will be the first of a suite of technologies to protect the campus mobility infrastructure. RamConnect will improve on the ability to connect the campus Wi-Fi securely.

Connect to the WSSU RamGuest Network

Shortly after visitors connect their computer or device to the “RamGuest” network, they will be asked to create and sign in with guest account credentials. Guests will not have access to University-specific resources, but will have full access to the Internet, and the traffic is not encrypted.

Connect to the WSSU RamStudent Network

Students should select the “RamStudent” network with passcode “wssurams” from the Wi-Fi networks presented on your computer or mobile device. Once connected, you will be directed to a secure webpage where you will enter your WSSU username or email address and current password, and then click the ‘Sign In’ button. If you are not immediately redirected to the login page, please open your web browser and navigate to a random website, or to The Ram Connect page to log in. If you are using a PC or laptop, on your first time logging in you will be prompted to install a policy key. Follow the installation steps to complete the procedure; then you will be granted Internet access. You will be required to log in daily as access is reset at 3:00 a.m.

Connect to the WSSU RamSecure Network

Faculty and staff should select the “RamSecure” network from the Wi-Fi networks presented on your laptop or mobile device. Enter your WSSU Username or Email address and password. Once connected select "Connect." This action will securely connect your device to the wireless network. Beginning Friday, March 10, 2017, all WSSU faculty and staff are required to use “RamSecure” to access the Wi-Fi on campus.

Adequately protected computers and networks are reliable and provide a better, more consistent, and safer experience for the entire WSSU community.
