Why Can’t I Connect This?! (Internet Troubles)

So you’ve successfully moved in and gotten everything plugged in. But now you can’t add your smart TV or Chromecast to the wifi because you can’t sign in like normal. What gives? How does one add their devices to the wifi without the proper security settings to allow you to sign into your uwyo account?

Thankfully there is an easy workaround. You simply need to purchase a WiFi router. That way your devices can connect to the router because it doesn’t require the same security as does our wifi. If you can hardwire the router into it, you’re good to go! You just need to make sure you secure your router with a good password so that nearby students don’t try to piggyback off of it.

If you’re not sure what router to purchase, you may need to do some homework on it. Keep in mind that despite what your router may say about its speed, it still is dependent on your ISP (Internet Service Provider). If they can provide a good internet connection and good speed, then you’re golden and your router can get to those speeds it boasts about. However, that usually is not the case so bear that in mind when purchasing a router.

As always, if you do have difficulty with setting any of this up, you can always bring it into the service center or call the help desk for troubleshooting! Have a great day everyone!
