Configuring personal devices for DuqNet wireless

Windows 7 Windows 8 Mac OSX
Chromebook Android Windows 10

Please note: Most devices connect simply by choosing DuqNet and entering your MultiPass username and password.

For gaming and streaming devices please see our DuqNet IoT page.

Windows 10 Connection Issues:

Windows 10 machines have a habit of holding onto old credentials and not allowing users to connect after changing their MultiPass. To repair this issue you simply need to forget DuqNet and reconnect with the new password.

We have created documentation to assist users in removing and re-adding this connection.

Network FAQ's

What does my tuition pay for in respect to the internet connection in my room?

All Living Learning Centers (LLCs) have been updated with state-of-the-art wireless technology. However, some newer peer-to peer applications, gaming consoles, wireless routers, and other recreational devices have a significant impact on our online services, which are for primary administrative, academic, educational, and research use.

DuqNet does require WPA2 Enterprise level encryption for traffic on the network. If your device is not WPA2 Enterprise compliant, we recommend that you contact your manufacturer for the most recent updates available.

Are you blocking any web sites or applications?

Duquesne Univeristy does not block any internet sites or applications that use the internet.

Academic usage has top priority on the network.

Can I bring a wireless router, FTP server, or web server onto campus?

The policy for student use of the campus network does not permit the operation of a server or router of any kind on the campus network. Servers and routers of this kind will not operate on the residential network.
