unsecure@hood.edu (802.11 g/n)
  
unsecure@hood is an open access network designated for wireless clients that are not compatible with WPA2 authentication, including most gaming consoles and mobile devices. Default authentication is via a web page requiring your Pergola User Name and Password. Users will need to re-authenticate if roaming between campus buildings or if there are periods of time that the client is disconnected from the network. Devices that cannot utilize a web page for authentication (such as most gaming stations) will utilize MAC address authentication. If this is the case, the MAC address info will need to be supplied to the IT department for connectivity.
