Campus Wireless Changes

Changes have been made to the campus wireless service to no longer require OnGuard Network Access Control. Previously OnGuard was used to enforce antivirus software and automatic patching requirements on computers connecting to campus wireless. Antivirus software and automatic patching are still required for all computers connecting to the campus network. Information on verifying that updates are enabled and antivirus is installed is available at https://support.csuchico.edu/TDClient/KB/ArticleDet?ID=18757

The OnGuard installer has been removed from the campus Eduroam wireless setup. OnGuard will continue to be required for campus VPN use. If you do not require campus VPN access you can uninstall the OnGuard software.
