Tips for a strong Wi-Fi connection

Text recommending turning wifi off then on again to find strongest wifi signal

The Campus Wi-Fi network has thousands of “access points.” As you move across campus your device falls out of range and begins looking for a new connection. Here are some tips for better connections:

  • Reset at your destination: Turn off/on mobile device Wi-Fi to reconnect to the strongest access point.
  • Outside coverage is limited: IT Services provides Wi-Fi in every building but only in limited outdoor areas.
  • Forget past networks: Reduce problems by “forgetting” old Wi-Fi networks. 
  • Turn off your hot spot: >Personal hotspots use the same frequencies as campus Wi-Fi and can create interference for users.
