Evergreen:  ESF's wireless network.

Wireless availability at ESF:
Wireless connections to the Internet are available inside all main campus buildings, as well as select remote campus buildings such as the Lafayette Field Station offices, 224 Harrison floors 7&8, all Ranger School buildings, and the AEC/AIC administrative buildings.

Please pay close attention to the connection requirements below and the list of wireless availability above. Many of the issues reported are due to devices that do not meet the requirements and also from people trying to connect or maintain a connection from a location that does not have supported wireless.
