Connecting to Xavier Wireless Networks

xavierwifisetup

This network is solely broadcast in residence halls wireless setup. Upon connecting, any webpage loaded will redirect to wifisetup.xavier.edu. This website will run a configuration utility that will setup most computers and mobile devices for xavierwireless access.

xavierwireless

This is the primary wireless network for employee and student devices. It uses 802.1x authentication (your Xavier username and password, as opposed to a traditional pre-shared key) to connect to the network. Xavier laptops (staff, loaners) are pre-configured for 'xavierwireless'.  Students and faculty/staff connecting personal devices should use the XpressConnect website to setup their systems for 'xavierwireless'

xavierguest

This network is for visitors only.  It is broadcast in non-residential buildings. This network does not have access to systems on Xavier's campus network such as printers or Banner. As a guest network, it also lacks optimizations for streaming and other bandwidth-intensive activity.

xmisc

This network is for consumer devices that lack basic support for 802.1x wireless, such as gaming consoles, smart TVs, content players (Blu-Ray AppleTV, Firestick), etc. These devices need to be registered before they can connect to the wireless network. You will need to find and submit the device's MAC address using the Xmisc registration form. When registering devices on xmisc, be aware of the following:

  • Some devices do not work well on Xmisc.
  • Wireless printers are not supported. These devices broadcast their own networks which cause interference and connectivity issues for others in the residence halls. If you bring a wireless printer, consult the product documentation about how to turn off the wireless radio and connect using a USB cable instead.
  • Wireless routers or extenders are prohibited for use in residence halls, due to the interference and connection problems they create.
