How To Connect To The Wi-Fi Griffith Halls of Residence (GHR) has recently installed a new Wi-Fi network across all 165 apartments in the complex!
The Wi-Fi network in GHR is built on an enterprise grade wireless network platform from Aruba Networks and is backed by their 24/7 support. The network is serviced by a 400Mb, symmetric, uncontended broadband link provided by Imagine Telecom.
GHR does not provide device support so residents must make sure all laptops, tablets, phones and other Wi-Fi enabled devices are updated and configured correctly with an up to date wireless card. To ensure the network is used for academic and communication purposes, certain restrictions to ports are in place, further details are available from the IT department in GCD.
To connect to the internet you will need to adjust your internet settings as you are connecting via a network and not a modem. If you continue to have problems contact the Accommodation Office or IT Services - Helpdesk@gcd.ie
