Wireless Network Setup for iOS

Getting Started

With default out of the box settings, your iOS device should be ready to connect to any of Willamette's wireless networks. These instructions will help you step by step.

Before connecting to our network be sure you have the following:

  • A valid Willamette Network Account.
  • Be in a residence hall or academic building where we provide coverage.
  • The proper security key for the network you are connecting to.

Connecting to a network

  1. Open the Settings app and tap Wi-Fi near the top of the list.
  2. Tap on the network name that matches your location (see Choosing an appropriate network page for more information)
  3. If you are connecting to a network that requires a security key you’ll see a prompt. Enter the security key (provided separately) and tap Join.
  4. Open a web browser (e.g. Safari, Firefox, Chrome).
  5. Follow instructions displayed in the browser window to complete the wireless network registration process.

Forgetting a network

You may want to forget a network to make sure your device automatically connects to the right one, e.g. a 5Ghz network.

  1. Open the Settings app and tap Wi-Fi near the top of the list.
  2. Tap on the network name that you would like your device to forget
  3. Tap "Forget This Network" above the IP address and other information.
  4. When prompted, tap "Forget."
  5. Make sure you're connected to the correct network afterward, indicated by a check mark.
