Wired Networks at the Mesa Lab

Each office has at least one dedicated 1Gb link to the CGD wired network. This network is only for CGD owned and maintained systems. Personal systems plugged into this network will be trapped and unable to browse anywhere or connect to any resources, either inside or outside of the lab.

On request, CGD can also provide you with a wired connection on the Guest network which will allow you connect to resources outside the lab, or, with the VPN client installed on your personal device, you may also connect to resources inside the lab. For more details on the VPN client, please see the following:

Remote Connections:VPN

Wireless Networks

There are two wireless networks available for users and guests:

  • UCAR Guests
  • UCAR VPN Clients

UCAR Guests is a password protected guest network that allows access to the web and resources outside of the lab. The password is available from the CGD systems staff, or from the following link with a UCAS password:

Guest Wireless Access

The password is valid from Monday at 4:00AM to the following Monday at 4:00AM. The subsequent password is posted on Wednesdays at 4:00AM. This network is available across the campus and may be used by visitors and staff, on UCAR owned or personal devices.

UCAR VPN Clients requires a UCAR VPN client on the wireless device, and allows access to resources both inside and outside the lab. The network is available across the campus for use by staff and visitors, on UCAR owned or personal devices. For more information on the VPN client, please see the following:
