I plan to buy a laptop and need advice. What do I need? We recommend having both an Ethernet card and a wireless card inside the laptop for access to the Gallaudet University networks. All Windows/Mac updates need to be installed and anti-virus software is required to be installed, updated, and running in order to connect to the wireless network. We highly recommend a built-in webcam within the laptop screen for students to communicate in ASL with each other and to create videos for classes. There are software discounts available for Gallaudet University students at Gallaudet Technology Services (GTS). Please click on this link below for more information.
