New Wireless Network Launching Jan. 30
Webster has a new wireless network beginning Jan. 30

Updated Jan. 29, 2018:

We have created some instructions on how to connect your Windows, Mac, Android or iOS device to this new network. Those instructions and more information can be found at webster.edu/technology/services/internet/wireless.

Beginning Tuesday, Jan. 30, there will be a new wireless network at Webster. This new network is called WU_Wireless and is slated to replace the current Webster wi-fi network.

To give people time to transition to the new network both the current webster-wifi and the new WU_Wireless will be available until April 27, when we will transition fully to the new network, turning off webster-wifi. WU_Wirelsss will be available anywhere Webster-wifi is currently broadcast including most US extended sites.

The new WU_Wireless network is a secure network utilizing 802.1x authentication. Besides offering better security, some of the other benefits include a one-time login per device, no more web authentication (splash screen), which means you do not have to re-authenticate when you arrive on campus or move between buildings.

We will also be expanding secure wireless access to more applications, such as printing for Faculty and Staff.
