Connecting to the Wireless Network


Along with having many general access computer labs with Internet access, UW-Eau Claire has made accessing the Internet even easier by making a wireless network available for faculty, staff, and students to use while on campus. Laptops that have wireless capabilities can connect to the Internet anywhere on campus that has the wireless signal. This document will guide you through the process of connecting to the wireless network on campus using both Windows 7 and Mac OSX.

If, after following these steps, you are unable to connect, please contact the Help Desk at 715-836-5711 or email at helpdesk@uwec.edu.
