OSU Wireless-Network: Setup for Windows 8

 

Note: Don't want to configure your wireless manually? Connect to WiFi@OSU network , open a browser and click on "Secure Network Access", for Students, Faculty and Staff. 

For more information about the WiFi@OSU network, please see this article.

The following instructions apply to Windows 8. If you have ever attempted to connect this device to OSU Wireless, follow these removal instructions first.

  1. Click (or tap when using a touch screen) on the Windows network icon in the system try.
  2. Verify, from the top of the menu, that Airplane Mode is turned off.
  3. Right-click (or tap and hold when using a touch screen) on any instances of osuwireless, osuguest and attwifi that appear in the list, and choose Forget this network if the option is presented.  If the Forget this network option is not presented, then the selected network does not need to be removed.

After 'osuwireless,' 'osuguest' and 'attwifi' have been removed, follow the configuration steps below to connect to 'osuwireless' successfully.

Configuration

  1. Click (or tap when using a touch screen) on the Windows network icon in the system try.
  2. Verify, from the top of the menu, that Airplane Mode is turned off.

  4. Ensure that Connect automatically is checked and click/tap Connect.
