Engineering student first winner of Wi-Fi weekly drawing
 
Grant Mottershaw, a College of Engineering student, is the first winner of UITís weekly Wi-Fi raffle. He won a Netgear N600 wireless dual band USB adapter, which will improve his use of UHís high-speed Wi-Fi network.

Students may enter the weekly raffle by submitting their name and email address at UITís Wi-Fi service desk located in the first floor of the M.D. Anderson Library. The service desk is open from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. Monday through Friday. Names are pulled every Friday, and winners are notified by email.

An average of 200 students have visited the booth each week since it opened in September, seeking ways to improve their high-speed Wi-Fi experience on campus. In some cases, this simply requires reconfiguring the settings on their wireless devices. In other cases, a USB adapter is suggested.

Due to its success, UIT is instituting a mobile Wi-Fi service desk. It will be located in the University Center Satellite for two to three weeks, and then relocated to another building depending upon student demand.

Students can purchase the Netgear Wi-Fi dual band USB adapter from Cougarbyte for $52.99 or at any other computer retail store.
