Johns Hopkins Enterprise Network Architecture and Design offers two wireless networks:
The "hopkins" wireless network is intended for use by Johns Hopkins faculty, staff, students, or anyone with a valid JHED ID. The "hopkins" wireless network is built with many security features, including WPA-Enterprise, PEAP, and powerful 256 bit encryption. A high speed data link is provided to all the resources on the internal network.
The "JHGuestnet" network is for casual use by guests and visitors at any Hopkins Campus. In addition, "JHGuestnet" can be used for devices that do not meet the requirements for the "hopkins" wireless network.
NOTE: Please see links to the left for additional wireless information including policies, coverage areas, and JHED information.
To access the "hopkins" wireless network, your device must have an 802.11a/b/g wireless adapter, capable of using WPA-Enterprise with AES 256-bit encryption. Most cards manufactured within the past two years will be compatible with the "hopkins" architecture. The "hopkins" wireless network also requires that you have a current JHED ID. IT @ JH provides support for the following operating systems.
Support for Linux and other mobile devices is on a best effort basis.
The Apple iPhone and iPod Touch are now able to connect to the "hopkins" wireless network, with the release of software version 2.0. This update supports WPA-Enterprise and 802.1X authentication.
The following are step-by step illustrated instructions in .pdf format.
"JHGuestnet" is for casual use by guest and visitors to all Johns Hopkins Institutions. It is for anyone who does not have JHED access. JHGuestnet provides connectivity to the internet and limited functionality to outside applications. A list of currently allowed applications can be found here.

"jhmiradio" will still be available on the East Baltimore campus and select other locations. A phase-out of this network will be implemented in the near term. Please contact the Help Desk at 410-955-4357 to set up an appointment, if you need to have "jhmiradio" configured. The legacy presence of this network is intended for clinical devices unable to configure WPA-Enterprise.
Note: Windows XP caches (saves) user credentials, after a successful logon. You may need to remove this information because a password changed, someone else used the device, or you want to start over. There are two ways to accomplish this:
