Danforth Campus Wireless Networks

There are a number of wireless networks that are broadcasted across the University. For all faculty, staff, and students on the Danforth Campus and South Forty, NSS recommends associating to the wustl1.0/2.0 wireless networks. For sensitive data, NSS recommends associating to the wustl-encrypted1.0/2.0 wireless network. For troubleshooting information or instructions on how configure a device on wustl-encrypted follow the links to the right.

wustl-1.0/2.0 (Recommended for ease of use)

This wireless access requires only a web browser and  WUSTL Key. Once a device is authenticated into the wustl wireless network it will not need to be authenticated again unless the device has not been on the wustl wireless network for more than six months.  Communication between the client device and the wireless network is not encrypted.

Caution should be taken to make sure that sensitive data is only sent to secured websites (e.g., SSL encrypted or designated with “HTTPS:”).

Please note: After successful registration, please reboot your machine in order for registration to take affect.
