Discussion in 'Naval Academy - USNA' started by angiern, Dec 12, 2012.
I was pondering Christmas gift options and this question occurred to me. Thanks in advance!
There have been threads on this, perhaps somewhat indirectly, in the past. If my recollection is correct only USNA authorized devices (ie. their laptops with the appropriate software) are allowed access to the USNA network... wifi or not. This is for rather obvious security reasons.
No, they do not. Depending on room location, cell signals can be spotty also. It seems those who have Verizon have better signal strength than those who use ATT since the former uses CDMA technology while the later uses GSM. Bancroft is basically a granite fortress with thick walls. Cheers...
great, thanks for the quick replies
Wifi is in all academic buildings except Mahan/Sampson/Maury (which is in all honesty one building). Some classrooms in some buildings lose the wifi for whatever reason.
The impenetrable walls of Bancroft Hall block pretty much all signals. I have nil signal on my cell phone from my room.
I thought the question was about wi-fi not cellular signal. Two different things.
Two Answers for Two Questions
You're correct, the original question was IRT wifi, hence my initial answer, no. But then I went on to describe cellular using, "also". Sorry if I didn't make it clear.
" Bancroft is basically a granite fortress with thick walls" Sort of like the old Portsmouth Naval Prison
"The Last Detail" Loved that movie.
Firat time I saw that place it scared me I had come back from SoWesPac to pick up a new Boat and found out they still had capital punishment. Could not wait to leave!!
Yea my Mids laptop had connectivity all over Bancroft, however when i would try to find a wifi signal with either my phone, or computer, there was no luck in finding a single bar.
This is what I hear:
There is a wifi network in bancroft, but the powers that be have not made it accessible to anyone.
Only ethernet is available in the hall.
wifi available in most ac buildings.
Separate names with a comma.
