Wireless Network Connection Issues

Status: Resolved

12:30pm - Since the Wireless Network Certificate was upgraded over the summer, be sure that you have forgotten the WWUWireless-Secure network on your personal device and then re-connect. If that still does not resolve the issue, try these additional troubleshooting steps.


Thursday, September 22nd, 8:30am - ITS made changes to the wireless network settings yesterday afternoon that may resolve connection issues. We will not know for certain until we reach peak wireless traffic between 10am and 2pm. If the problems reoccur during that window, ITS will attempt additional repairs.


12:15pm - Users again unable to connect. Reports have specified issues in Haggard Hall, Miller Hall, and Ross Engineering Technology buildings. The root cause is still being investigated. Keep an eye on this alert for updates.


Beginning around 10am on Wednesday, September 21st, users were unable to connect to any of WWU's Wireless networks. EIS restarted a server at 10:30am and connections were restored. If you are still experiencing difficulty connecting, please try forgetting and re-adding the network. For any other ongoing wireless issues, please contact the Help Desk.

Wireless Network Certificate Update

Status: Resolved

WWU has updated its security certificate for all WWU wireless networks. You may be prompted to accept the new certificate the next time you connect to the WWU wireless network. If you are unable to connect to the WWUwireless-Secure or WWUwireless-Guest network, you may need to "forget" the network on your wireless device (e.g., phone, iPad, laptop) and then reconnect. This is in the Settings app for most Android and iOS devices. macOS users can click the Wi-Fi icon in the top right of their display. See here for additional information: Troubleshooting Connection Issues with WWUwireless-Secure - Jira Service Management (

NoteWWU periodically updates the certificate for our Wi-Fi networks, and it’s quite likely that certificates have been updated since the last time your wireless device was connected to Western’s wireless network. Some devices will automatically upgrade to the new certificate, while others will be unable to connect to the wireless network and Internet until you accept the new certificate by forgetting and then adding it back and reauthenticating. This solution is also often necessary after you change your password.
