How To - WiFi

SSE Riga provides wireless network access to all of its students, faculty and visitors. It is available in the whole building and in the immediate areas surrounding it (the courtyard and RGSL lobby) as well as in W32 auditorium. There are 2 networks - "sseriga" and "sseriga_public" - both with identical coverage.

  • sseriga is a secure high-speed network accessible only to students, faculty and administration. To use it you must have account within the SSE Riga organization. This network should be used for network-intensive academic tasks only.
  • sseriga_public is a password-protected public access network for everyone to use. This network has limited speed and should be used by school guests or on devices where network speed is not as important (mobile phones etc.).

!!! Before connecting to any network please make sure Skype/Outlook/uTorrent/other internet related software is closed (not minimized into the Notification area or Taskbar). It may prevent you from connecting properly. Torrents and other music/video content downloads are prohibited in SSE Riga premises/networks !!!
