BeachNet+ Wireless Network

To connect to BeachNet+, you must have a valid nine digit CampusID along with your BeachID password. Connecting to BeachNet+ is different than connecting to BeachNet because no web browser is required to authenticate. You authenticate as you select the wireless network BeachNet+ from your device. A one-time configuration of your device is required. Instructions below:

Note: The Wireless network supports the WiFi standards 802.11a, 802.11g, and 802.11n. Most wireless-configured devices purchased since January 2007 should be compatible with BeachNet+. The BeachNet service is also available to support guest access and older devices that may not be compatible with BeachNet+. Campus employees should contact your department Technical Coordinator for more assistance with compatibility issues. Students should contact the Technology Help Desk at (562) 985-4959 or helpdesk@csulb.edu.

Benefits of BeachNet+ (and unlike regular BeachNet):

  • Data is protected by encryption as it passes from a computing device to a campus wireless access point.
  • Users can expect wireless speeds to be up to 10 times as fast as the BeachNet service.
  • No web browser is required to sign in.
  • Users will not be prompted to enter their BeachID credentials as often. Most devices connected to BeachNet+ will automatically retain necessary credentials without prompting a user to re-enter them, even after periods of inactivity or roaming between locations across campus.
