Using the UW-Eau Claire Wireless Network

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.

Documentation has been developed to help you to register your device before using off-campus resources. The following how-to document contains step by step instructions:


Registering Your Wireless Device

Faculty, staff, and students may use the wireless network without registering in order to access email and network drives.

You will be asked to register your wireless device in the following situations:

  • As soon as you attempt to access a domain outside of the UWEC domain
  • The first time you use the network
  • Students returning each fall


If you have any problems or questions with connecting to the network or registering your device, contact the Helpdesk at 836-5711.

Excellence. Our Measure. Our Motto. Our Goal.
