FDU-Secure Wi-Fi Connection for FDU Owned Equipment

When using FDU Owned equipment, FDU-Secure should be your default method for connecting to the on-campus wireless network. FDU-Secure uses current encryption standards to connect to the FDU wireless network via secure wireless traffic. Although it requires a modicum of configuration upon initial setup, your device will automatically reconnect going forward. Follow the procedure below and contact our University Technical Assistance Center at (973)-443-8822 if you encounter any issues.
