Wireless Internet

Weber State University provides secure wireless internet access for use by faculty, staff, and active students.  Limited access is also offered to guests visiting campus via our WSU Guest network.

While using our network services, users are subject to WSU's Acceptable Use Policy for Computing and Network Resources (PPM 10-2).  Violation of this policy may result in a user's network access being suspended.  Note that any sort of peer-to-peer (P2P) connection is strictly prohibited while on campus (Torrents, Limewire, etc.).

WSU wireless consists of three SSID's: WSU Secure, WSU Guest, and eduroam.

For detailed connection instructions, refer to the following articles:

If you require assistance or have further questions, please contact the IT Service Desk.


WSU Secure

The WSU Secure network allows for fast and secure internet access.  This network is reserved for employees and active students.  Students are considered active once they are registered for courses.

Users will authenticate to WSU Secure by using their Wildcat username and password.  For password help, see the Wildcat Passwords page.

Most devices are compatible with WSU Secure although some may not work with our security settings.  Users can verify their device is compatible by ensuring it supports WPA2-Enterprise and 802.1X.

Advanced connection information:

  • SSID: WSU Secure
  • Security Type: WPA2-Enterprise
  • Encryption: AES
  • Authentication Method: Protected EAP (PEAP) (EAP-MSCHAP v2)

    If prompted:
  • CA certificate: Use system certificate
  • Domain: weber.edu

WSU Guest

The WSU Guest network is an open, unsecure network that is available to guests visiting campus.  This network has limited speed and also has a web filter.  Users will not be able to access any secure websites including many of Weber State's secure web pages as they will be filtered out.  Employees and active students should use WSU Secure instead of WSU Guest.

Users will not need to authenticate to use WSU Guest, but an internet browser window will prompt and require acceptance of the Acceptable Use Policy before a connection is fully established.

Advanced connection information:

  • SSID: WSU Guest
  • Security Type: None (Open)

eduroam

Weber State is proud to provide access to eduroam. WSU users can access fast and secure wireless internet wherever eduroam is offered (all around the globe) by using their own WSU credentials. This also allows visitors whose institutions use eduroam to visit our Weber State campuses and connect to our eduroam network by using their own institutional credentials*.

WSU users can authenticate to any eduroam network by using the following credentials:

  • Username: Your full Weber email address
  • Passsword: (regular Wildcat password)

    If prompted:
  • CA certificate: Use system certificate
  • Domain: weber.edu

*Visitors attempting to use eduroam at WSU may need to contact their own institutions to find out what connection credentials they should use.

There are many universities and organizations that provide eduroam.  A complete list is available on the eduroam website here.

Using a gaming system?

Here's what you need to know:

Currently no editions of XBox, PlayStation, or Nintendo systems support WPA2-Enterprise and will not be able to connecto to WSU Secure. This applies to consoles as well as handheld gaming systems.

Most gaming consoles have Ethernet ports that allow for a wired internet connection. If you live in the student dorms, see options for wired internet.
