Using your laptop, tablet, smartphone, or other wireless device, search for wireless networks.

You will find a network named "CWSL Students".  When you connect to this network, you will be prompted for your user name and password.  Use the same user name and password that you would use to log in to the computer lab, or your email.

You may get a warning that your system can't confirm the security certificate, or that it can't confirm the server.  Go ahead and make the connection anyway.  (Some systems have trouble confirming the security certificate we have for the wireless network.)

If the system works properly, you should now be connected to the CWSL network, and to the Internet.  Whenever you are on campus, your system should connect automatically to our wireless network.

For Library guests who need to connect to the CWSL Guests network, inquire at the Reserve desk in the Library.
