Wireless and Mobile Access
Wesleyan provides wireless networking throughout the campus, including dormitories, academic and administrative buildings. You will also find wireless signals in outside gathering areas such as the patio in front of the Usdan Campus Center. Please keep in mind that the strength of a signal can vary locally, depending on physical obstructions such as walls and doors or transient interference from other devices that emit radio waves.
The Wesleyan wireless network is compatible with any machine that is equipped with an 802.11b/g/n and 802.11 ac. Wesleyan uses Aruba for wireless access.
Logging in to the Wesleyan Wireless Network
Users are required to login when using the Wesleyan wireless network. Requiring wireless network logins provides ITS a way to restrict use of the network to faculty, staff, students, and authorized guests, keeping our network secure and functional. You must log in to the wireless network before using any wireless network services, including e-mail, Web browsing, and Wesfiles access.
You should login to the wireless network with your E-Mail username. Once you have logged in, you will be able to browse to any web page, and use other networking services such as e-mail, Moodle and ePortfolio.
Guests may register for a guest account by connecting to the Wes-Guest network. Upon connecting and opening a web browser, guests may obtain access by registering for an account. A username and password will be emailed or sent via text to the guest user.
Faculty, Staff and Student Access
Wesleyan uses WPA2 Enterprise encryption for its Airwes network. Airwes is available for all current students, faculty and staff. When connecting to Airwes, users will be required to enter their username and password. This information can then be stored on the device for seamless access.
Because Android devices vary by model and carrier, it is difficult to create specific instructions. Contact your Desktop Support Specialist or Student Helpdesk via service.wesleyan.edu if you need assistance.
