What is OSU Access?
OSU_Access is the unsecured campus wireless network. Anybody with an ONID account or a Conference Login can connect.
How do I connect?
You can connect to OSU Access using your laptop's wireless connection. If it is set to automatically connect, it may ask you if you really want to connect to it. You may also have to select it from the list of wireless networks, and it may ask you if you really want to connect here as well. In either case select Ok, or Connect.
