CHANGING YOUR DEFAULT WIRELESS NETWORK
When you use one of Smith's wireless networks to complete the network-registation process for a wireless device, your device may retain that network's SSID (Service Set Identifier) as the default network and automatically connect to it whenever you're on campus.
If you would like to change your default wireless network at any time, follow the steps below for your operating system:
- Open the Start menu.
- In the Search box, enter Network and Sharing Center and press Enter.
- On the left side of the Network and Sharing Center window, choose Manage wireless networks. You will see a list of wireless networks you’ve connected to in the past.
- Change the priority of any wireless network by selecting it and clicking Move up or Move down. The top network in the list has the highest priority.
- When you're done, click OK.
Mac OS X
- Click the Apple menu in the top left of your desktop and choose System Preferences.
- In the Preferences window, click the Network icon.
- In the Network window, select Wi-Fi or AirPort in the left menu, then click the Advanced button on the right.
- Under the Wi-Fi or AirPort tab, drag items in the preferred networks list up or down in the list to change their priority. The top network in the list has the highest priority.
- When you're done, click OK, then Apply.
- If this process doesn't work, go back into your network list and delete SmithGuest, SmithSecure, and any other old connections you don't need.
- Choose Eduroam from your list of available networks. Once you're connected, repeat steps 1-5 above.
