How to use the wireless internet inside the University?
First of all you need to get an account from ZDV, which every new student gets automatically after enrolment. Once you have an account follow the procedure for your favourite operating system.

Install VPN Software
Make sure that you have a following package installed:
Connect to the wireless network
Left-click on the Network Manager icon and choose BELWUE from the list of available wireless networks
Left-click on the Network Manager icon, go to VPN Connections -> Configure VPN...
It should open the VPN tab of the Network Connections preferences
In this window press the Add button
Which will prompt for a VPN Connection Type, where you should choose Cisco Compatible VPN(vpnc) and press Create...
In the next window you should fill the connection settings as following:
Connection Name: anything you like
Group Name: belwue

Leave the other fields at their default values. Press OK to save
