Westminster offers 3 ways users can connect to the Westminster College wireless network:
WestNet- This network is open with no encryption. This is the quickest way to connect but you will have to login (using your Westminster Username and Password) each time you connect to the network.
WestNetSecured- This is an encrypted wireless network that allows the user to configure their computer to automatically authenticate to the network each time they connect. It uses WPA Enterprise encryption. Click on your operating system to receive instructions on how to connect to WestNetSecure: Windows XP, Windows Vista, Windows 7, and Mac OSX.
RecNet- Many consumer devices don't have the ability to use WPA Enterprise encryption. Examples of these types of devices are videogame consoles and networked digital media players. RecNet is a WPA PSK (pre-shared key) that will allow these types of devices to connect. Below are the instructions on how to connect to the RecNet network:
1. Login in to WebAdvisor
2. Click "Current Students"
3. Under the User Account heading select "RecNet Device Registry"
4. Complete the form to register your device (MAC address is needed)
5. The password to the network will come in your Westminster Email
