Selecting / Purchasing a Wifi-Client

Wi-Fi Client Device Recommendations:

For optimal Wi-Fi performance at York University, it is required that a Wi-Fi client (laptop, tablet, smartphone, etc) be:

  • Wi-Fi Certified
    • This ensures client devices are tested against Wi-Fi industry standards for interoperability, security, easy installation, and reliability and are compatible with the infrastructure supporting the Wi-Fi access services offered at York University.
  • Supports IEEE 802.11ac protocol
    • The ability to support 802.11ac ensures optimal Wi-Fi speeds are attainable and can be achieved in high-density settings such as lecture halls and libraries.
