The NPWirelessx allows staff and students' computers to connect to the NP wireless network seamlessly. However, NPWirelessx will require a one-time setup on your computer. Please click here for the configuration steps.


On the other hand, NPWireless does not require pre-configuration. Users only need to select the SSID, pop up a browser to authenticate and start surfing.
