Connecting a Wi-Fi PDA at NCSU:
- your PDA must have either an integrated or a plug-in wireless card;
- your PDA must have a web browser capable of connecting to secure web sites;
- you must have an NCSU Unity username and password.
Make sure the Wi-Fi interface is turned on. Unlike laptops, most PDAs require you to turn on the wireless interface. It is usually off by default to conserve battery life.
