The UWRF residence halls are 100 percent wireless. There are no wired ports available in any of the residence halls. You must have a wireless device to connect to the internet in your room. If your device (such as a computer, tablet, game system, blu-ray player, smart TV, etc.) does not have wireless capabilities, you will need to obtain a wireless adapter for your device.
The Chromecast is not supported in our ResHalls and will not work properly.
Original Wii gaming consoles will be unable to connect to the wireless network.
- Wiis are unable to connect to our wireless without using an older technology standard called 802.11b which is not supported on campus. We only support the newer, faster standards 802.11g and 802.11n. You can continue to play most games on your Wii without connecting to the network.
- If you use your Wii to stream Netflix, there are many alternatives which will allow you to inexpensively stream services to your television. If you would like a recommendation on a streaming option or wireless adapter for a device, please contact us at email@example.com or call us at 715-425-3687.
Connect to the UWRF-CAMPUS wireless network using your Falcon ID username and password. You should only need to do this once each term. On this new network (which replaced FalconAir) you will be able to self-register your game systems and other devices.
The UWRF-GUESTS network is available for your guests. They will need to agree to our Acceptable Use Policy to gain wireless access and will be required to do so every 4 hours. This network is limited in several ways including access to campus resources. As a student with a Falcon ID, you should choose the UWRF-CAMPUS network to ensure access to campus resources at greater speeds.
