Accessing the Northwestern Wireless Network

The Northwestern wireless network uses WPA2-Enterprise authentication to provide a high level of data security. Most computers, tablets, and smartphones are compatible with this type of authentication.

Select Northwestern from the list of available wireless networks. Your wireless device should connect automatically. Then, enter your NetID and NetID password when prompted. 

When changing your NetID password, remember to update your wireless settings to use the new password. For more detailed instructions, please consult the Northwestern Knowledge Base: Wireless.

Devices, including wireless printers, game systems, and TVs (e.g. Apple TV) are not generally compatible with the Northwestern wireless network. Register your device with the Device-Northwestern network.
