Xavier University's 'Xmisc' wireless network is designed for gaming consoles, Apple TVs, and other household/consumer devices that do not support WPA2-Enterprise (802.1x) wireless security. The preshare-key required for this network will be emailed to you after your registration request has been completed.
Laptops, tablets, phones that support connecting to 'xavierwireless' should use the WiFi setup tool to configure the device. A wireless network is broadcast in the residence halls for setup. Submission of this form is unnecessary for supported devices.
To submit this form, you will need to supply the MAC address of your device. The MAC address is commonly listed under a network settings menu. If you need further assistance finding the WiFi MAC Address, perform a Google search for "[device] [model] MAC address" to get more precise instructions.
- If you see a wireless printer being broadcast as a network, its interference will slow your connectivity and will create connection problems for some individuals in the area. Ask your neighbors if WiFi is disabled on their printers (to alleviate this issue), otherwise, report it to IT if you cannot determine the source. We want you to have the best wireless connectivity, by removing interference from 'xavierwireless' or 'Xmisc' networks.
- Wireless printers are not supported on Xmisc. Wireless printing works in home networks, but does not work in a large campus network. These printers are a known source of intermittent connectivity issues in residence halls. We advise that you connect your printer with a USB cable and turn off its WiFi radio.
- Personal WiFi routers are prohibited due to the interference and connection problems they create on Xavier networks.
- The Nintendo Wii is not capable of connecting to our wireless network; it requires a 1Mb/s data rate to connect, which has a negative impact on other wireless connectivity. You will need to purchase a 'LAN Adapter' to connect a Wii to the wired network jack in your room.
