WLAN at the MPImF
In some parts of the institute as well as in the Max-Planck-House WLAN is available.
The current standard 802.11n (up to 300MBit/s bandwidth) is supported both in the 2,4 and 5GHz band, an extension to the most current 802.11ac standard (Gigabit WLAN) is ongoing.
For guests of the Institute, a seperate guest WLAN is available. To use it, vouchers can be obtained from the departments secretariats as well as from the front entrance.
The institute takes part in Eduroam to make the use of the WLAN available to scientific guests. This service can be used by everyone who has an account at an institution which takes part in Eduroam.
Here you will find manuals for setting up your clients (PC, Mac, Smartphone etc.) to use Eduroam.
