Network FAQs

What does my tuition pay for in respect to the internet connection in my room?

All Living Learning Centers (LLCs) have been updated with state-of-the-art wireless technology. However, some newer peer-to peer applications, gaming consoles, wireless routers, and other recreational devices have a significant impact on our online services, which are for primary administrative, academic, educational, and research use.

DuqNet does require WPA2 Enterprise level encryption for traffic on the network. If your device is not WPA2 Enterprise compliant, we recommend that you contact your manufacturer for the most recent updates available.

Are you blocking any web sites or applications?

Duquesne Univeristy does not block any internet sites or applications that use the internet.

Academic usage has top priority on the network.

Can I bring a wireless router, FTP server, or web server onto campus?

The policy for student use of the campus network does not permit the operation of a server or router of any kind on the campus network. Servers and routers of this kind will not operate on the residential network.
