General Information

The LSUSecure wireless network is available to all LSU students, faculty, and staff. It provides all the conveniences of a regular wired connection without the need for cables. As a shared resource, wireless networking is intended primarily to supplement the campus wired infrastructure, not to replace it. 

If you are unable to connect or need assistance, please contact the Help Desk at 225.578.3375. Personal assistance is also available at Middleton Library Information Commons Help Desk and Frey Computing Services Center Help Desk.

Configuration Settings

Configuration of secure wireless settings varies depending on the operating system and the type of wireless adapter. In Windows XP, for instance, you can use Windows to configure your wireless settings, or you can make use of the configuration utility provided with your wireless adapter, as long as this utility has all the requirements to connect to the LSU network.

Below we provide the information necessary to configure your device to connect to the LSU wireless network. Since we cannot cover every instance, the necessary information you may need to connect to the LSU wireless network is shown below.


ESSID (Network Name):  lsusecure

Network Authentication:  WPA/WPA2
Data Encryption:  TKIP/AES
Authentication Method/Protocol:  MSCHAP-V2
Inner EAP Type:  EAP-MSCHAPv2
Certificate Authority (CA):  AddTrust External CA Root

Your wireless adapter must have support for WPA2-Enterprise & must be Wi-Fi certified.

Your wireless adapter must support the following wireless standards & bands:
      802.11a/n (5GHz) & 802.11g/n (2.4GHz)

For the best experience, your adapter must support 802.11a/n (5GHz).

WPA comes in two flavors: WPA-Personal and WPA-Enterprise.
      It is important to make this distinction as the LSU wireless network will only support the Enterprise mode.

FITS: Action Item 1.05

The campus network, and its connections to external networks (both commodity Internet and advanced research networks), must continue to be able to handle large volumes of traffic and be nearly flawless in its reliability and availability. 

The network must continue to increase its bandwidth, versatility and reliability as the University continues to move to the cloud for its services and additional devices which utilize network resources arrive on campus. 

Thus, the University needs to ensure that the network features several, diverse, and redundant connections off campus so that downtime is virtually nonexistent.
