What is Purdue Wireless or Wi-Fi?

Purdue’s wireless network on the West Lafayette campus is known as PAL (Purdue Air Link). It connects wireless-ready laptops, smartphones, and other mobile devices to the Purdue network and through it, to the Internet. PAL is accessible in most areas on campus, including academic buildings, administrative buildings, and the common areas of most residence halls.
