Brown has three wireless internet networks available on campus: Brown, Brown-Guest, and eduroam.
If you are a short-term visitor or have not yet set up Brown on your device, you must connect using Brown-Guest.
Please be aware that Brown’s guest wireless network is unencrypted and bandwidth is limited. You cannot access library resources and some other Brown resources using Brown-Guest, and some types of traffic are blocked. For these reasons, we recommend using eduroam or Brown if you have the option.
The Brown secure wireless network is available to all long-term visitors who are issued a Brown Sponsored ID. In order to connect to Brown, you must first activate your Brown ID and user account. Once your Brown ID and user account are active, follow these steps to install the certificates and connect to Brown.
Brown's XpressConnect client does not always work properly when configuring the secure Brown network on Linux. If you are unable to connect on Linux, please follow the WiFi Setup: Linux instructions.
If you have questions about these instructions or require further assistance, please contact the ICERM IT staff by dropping by the administrative offices or emailing firstname.lastname@example.org.
