First, check to be sure you’re connected to the wireless network. You won’t be able to access netspace from bucknell_guests.

For Win 7, you can click on the Start Button and in the Search Box that appears, type in \\netspace, then hit Enter

For Win 10, Win 8 or Win 7, you can also hold down the Windows key and press bring up the Search Box, where you can type \\netspace

In Win 10, you can also just type directly into the search box next to the Start button

You’ll get a window that asks you for a username and password – this is because our network doesn’t know who you are.  You can type bucknell\username or, then put in your Bucknell password and hit Enter

You should now get an Explorer window with all of the various netspace folders: Departments, Students, Projects, etc.

Pro Tip: You can type \\netspace\username.$ to go directly to your public and private space!

You can also type in a direct path. For example, if you find you’re always going to a folder on the Management public space, you can type in the whole path, and you’ll find that your previous searches are stored in the Search Box. That would look like this:


Once you’ve authenticated with your username, you can go to any folder you have access to, but if you restart, or disconnect from wireless, you’ll need to re-authenticate.
