Xmisc Network Request

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 to join 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 such 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.

NOTES:

  • If you see a wireless printer in your device's list of available networks, the printer's interference will create connection and speed problems for those in the area. Ask your neighbors if WiFi is disabled on their printers. If you cannot determine the source,  report it to ITWe want you to have the best wireless experience by removing interference from 'xavierwireless' or 'Xmisc' networks.
  • Wireless printers are not supported on Xmisc. 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.
  • 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.
