To Connect to the Linfield College On-Campus Network:
To connect wirelessly to the Linfield network, students will need to authenticate (log in) with their CATNet ID's. Personal computers are required to have all current critical Microsoft updates installed and a current Anti-Virus program with the latest Anti-Virus updates before they connect to the Linfield Network. ITS recommends and encourages you to download and install all Microsoft and Anti-Virus updates before you arrive on campus. Cisco Clean Access recognizes many anti-virus programs, among them are McAfee**, Norton, Avast, and TrendMicro.
**NOTE: McAfee anti-virus software is only provided for Linfield students residing on the McMinnville campus. The McAfee Antivirus software is available after you arrive on campus. There is no charge for the McAfee software.

CatNet ID’s & Student Email Accounts
