UNH IT Releases Recommendations for WiFi Devices

UNH’s wireless network operates best when accessed by devices equipped with the latest wireless networking standard, 802.11ac. This applies to research and online recreation alike.

UNH IT recommends when shopping and purchasing new wireless devices, seek those complying with 802.11ac standard. This applies to UNH students, faculty, and staff.

Here is a quick guide:

  • Game Consoles

    • For the best possible user experience, 802.11ac capability is strongly recommended.
    • Newer PlayStation 4s (Slim and Pro), Xbox Ones (S and X models), and the Nintendo Switch are all 802.11ac capable.
  • Non-browsing devices – Devices like Smart TVs, Rokus, Google Homes, Alexa, etc.
