To protect the CNU Network, ITS has implemented a system that makes sure only fully-­patched

computers with a working antivirus are able to connect to the network. Out­-of-­date computers or

those without the necessary antivirus are only able to access the sites needed to update the operating system or antivirus.

This is checked by Aruba OnGuard, a program that monitors your computer and ensures that it's up to date and protected. The first time that you sign in to CNU's wireless network, you'll have to download OnGuard.

First, log in to CNU-Wifi as normal.  Then attempt to go to any website. You’ll be redirected to the download page for the OnGuard agent.

If you need an antivirus program, you can obtain it from one of the following vendors.  If you have an anti-virus program that is not on this list, you can check the full list of supported antivirus programs.

Fix the problems with your computer. You’ll have access to operating system and antivirus websites to do so.  When you’ve done that, OnGuard will recheck your system within the next couple of minutes. If everything has been fixed, you should then be able to access the Internet.
