Devices

 

There are a growing number consumer wireless devices that will work well in your home but may be incompatible on a large network. La Salle uses WPA2-Enterprise for its security.  Unfortunately, many consumer products do not support this security protocol.

In order for any device to be able to connect using WPA2-Enterprise, it must have 802.1x-compatible wireless hardware that is WiFi Certified, and it must run an operating system that is WPA2-Enterprise Certified. This means the hardware is certified as inter-operable with other manufacturers’ wireless equipment, and the operating system supports the WPA2-Enterprise standard for wireless security.

Below is a list of commonly used devices that DO NOT support the WPA2-Enterprise network security. This list is not comprehensive and will change as new information becomes available:

• Amazon Echo
• Amazon Echo Dot
• Google Chromecast
• Google Home
• NVIDIA Shield (all editions)

At this time, La Salle cannot support these devices but they will be reviewed again as new technology is released. If you have any questions or concerns please contact the Help Desk at 215-951-1860 or helpdek@lasalle.edu.
