Gravity, Supersymmetry and Branes:
There will be provision for participants to access the internet either via their own laptop or using common desktop computers. Please see the instructions below for obtaining the guest account required.
Creating a Guest Account
You can connect to the internet either with the wireless network using your own laptop, or using one of the desktop computers in room 319 on level 3. In both cases, you will first have to create a guest account. For this you need the "Unique ID" of the conference:
Unique ID: conf-36802
There are two ways to create a guest account:
You can then use your username and password to access desktop computers in room 319 or to connect to the wireless network.
Connecting to the Wireless Network
In most cases connecting to the wireless network with SSID Imperial-WPA and logging in with your given username and password should be sufficient. If you have any difficulties, please contact the registration desk for further information.
Connecting to the wireless network using WPA-Enterprise
WPA-Enterprise authentication allows you to connect securely to the College wireless network. This connection mechanism is supported by a number of operating systems and wireless cards. WPA-Enterprise, sometimes referred to simply as WPA, must be supported by your device: this is not the same as WPA-Personal or WPA-PSK.
The SSID (Network Identifier) is Imperial-WPA (case sensitive). Choose PEAP (MS-Chap-v2) as the authentication type. If you have the option to set an "Outer Identity" then set this to your username.
Connecting to the wireless network via VPN
Connect to the open network ICWLAN (no password needed). Having established a wireless
connection you should then open a (PPTP) VPN connection to the VPN service
