FXNET Secure wi-fi:
In order to provide a secure service, the Wi-Fi connection across both the Falmouth and Penryn Campus’ is FXNET Secure. Network security is of paramount importance to Falmouth University and Falmouth Exeter Plus and the FXNET Secure WI-FI has been designed with security in mind.
As well as offering a more secure service, there are other benefits to using this WI-FI connection:
- A simpler and quicker connection process, (you will no longer need to register your device using device registration)
- Less chance of service failure
- Problem machines which could be at risk will be detected and removed from the network much more quickly
- Improved performance
- No need to wait for your device to be registered and become ‘active’ during peak times
Initially, you will need to configure your device to access the FXNET Secure WI-FI. Once your device has been configured, all you need is your university username and password to connect. The relevant documentation to guide you through this configuration process is available to download from our website - http://www.fxplus.ac.uk/students/it-service-desk/wi-fi or from the service desk. The Service Desk team can also assist you to connect your device for the first time. Please do not hesitate to contact the Service Desk if you have any queries or concerns.

Use of File Sharing Software:
