Devices permitted on the IU network

At Indiana University, any device you connect to the university's network needs to comply with standards set by the Federal Communications Commission (FCC). This includes wireless routers and telephones, among other devices. If you bought your device in the United States, it is FCC-compliant. If you bought it in another country, look for the FCC logo on the body, the box, or the manual:

At IU Bloomington, you may operate a properly configured, FCC-approved wireless access point (WAP) as an exception to Extending the University Data Network (IT-19) and Wireless Networking (IT-20) from the University Information Policy Office (UIPO) only if your residence is listed at Wireless Networking: Temporary Exception 2 (ITE20-02). Once the campus wireless network is available in your residence, this exception will no longer apply and you will need to remove your WAP from the network.

See Configure a wireless access point at IUB if your campus residence does not yet have wireless.

Any wireless router/access point (WAP) you purchase needs to have regular security updates available from the vendor. Vendors that have regular security updates include Netgear, Linksys, and D-Link.
