Wireless at Bentley boasts more than double the number of access points to increase coverage; 802.11n bandwidth for faster speed; and enhanced security with WPA2 encryption. The wireless networks appear as “airfalcon”, "Bentley-Guest" and "bdevice".
The networks support 802.11n and 802.11g technologies. Most laptop computers and handheld devices manufactured within the last five years support at least one of these protocols; older devices supporting 802.11b will not connect.
