Wireless Internet Access for Faculty and Staff


GWireless is a secure wireless network that uses an authentication method that works with a variety of computers, Apple iOS mobile devices and a variety of Android devices. GWireless automatically connects devices to the Internet, and once users are connected, they will not have to log in to the system again. GW community members may log in to GWireless using their GW NetIDs (your GW NetID is the part of your GW email address before the “@” symbol) and the passwords that correspond to their NetIDs. For instructions on how to configure your devices for the GWireless Network please visit the GWiz Knowledgebase and search for keyword "GWireless"
