Connect to Guest Wireless

How to connect to the WPI Guest Wireless network.

The guest portal is available to guests of WPI employees or events. A username and password is required to access this network, and is provisioned by WPI ITS via the request form. The overall operation is similar to using many public "hotspot" networks, such as Starbucks or Barnes and Noble.

  1. Connect to the "WPI-Open" wireless network. This network requires no encryption or authentication at the wireless layer.
  2. Note:

    If you have any concerns that any of your guests will not know how to accomplish this step, please let us know, and we will schedule a NetOps staff member to assist.
  3. Open a web browser. The initial attempt to view a web page, such as your home page, will be redirected to the initial login page.
  4. Enter in the username and password provided to you by Network Operations, and click on the "Login" button.
  5. Once the username and password are accepted, you will be granted network access and your web browser will be redirected to the site you originally requested. You may use the network as you would normally.

Please note that if you are disconnected from the network for any length of time, such as if you suspend your laptop, you may be required to log into the guest portal again.
