Wireless

Before gaining access to the wireless network, you must:

  1. Possess a wireless device with a wireless interface card and configured for DHCP protocol.
    • Only four wireless devices may be registered per person per semester.
  2. Know your Washburn e-mail address and password.
  3. Using a browser on the wireless device in an area on campus with a wireless access point, try to access netreg.nix.washburn.edu.
  4. The Washburn University Wireless Registration screen should appear. If it does not:
    1. Determine if you are in a location on campus with wireless availability.
    2. Make sure the wireless card is properly installed in the wireless device.
    3. Check the wireless network configuration to make sure it is set up for DHCP.
    4. Check to make sure the time and date on the wireless device are accurate.
    5. Delete the browser's temporary Internet files (cache). In Internet Explorer, this is done by selecting Tools, then Internet Options.
    6. Go to step (3) and try again. If the University Wireless Registration screen does not appear, stop by Bennett 104, call 785.670.3000, or contact support@washburn.edu.
  5. Enter your Washburn Office 365 username (first.last@washburn.edu).
  6. Read the information on the screen.
  7. Indicate your agreement to the stated terms by selecting the "Accept" button.
  8. When the confirmation screen appears, reboot the system.
