About the WiFi in Your Room

We hope you are enjoying your first week of classes. We are sending you this message to help avoid confusion regarding connecting your devices to WiFi/UWNet in your room. All rooms in the residence halls have their OWN wireless access point (HAP). These HAPs are state of the art wireless access points that provide a fast, consistent and reliable internet connection. There is no need to purchase a wireless router to connect your devices to WiFi.

If you need a wired connection, each wireless access point has at least one wired port for you to connect to.

If you are having trouble connecting your devices (such as a gaming system, smart TV, or other streaming device) to UWNet, please contact the DoIT Help Desk. They can help you troubleshoot getting these connected and working for you.

Thank you for your time and On Wisconsin!
