Troubleshooting WiFi

If you're experiencing difficulty connecting to WiFi, or using the SVSUSecure or SVSUMediaGaming networks, here are some effective troubleshooting tips:

Basic Troubleshooting Steps:

  • Check Device Settings:
    • Ensure WiFi is enabled and airplane mode is off.
  • Refresh Network List:
    • Turn WiFi off and then back on. This is particularly useful when moving between different locations on campus.
  • Forget and Reconnect:

Optimize Your Connection:

  • Reduce Bandwidth Usage:
    • Limit the use of high-bandwidth apps and the number of devices connected.
    • Remember, WiFi is a shared resource. Activities like streaming high-definition videos or downloading large files can significantly impact network performance.

For SVSU Housing Residents:

  • Manage Device Connectivity:
    • Consider connecting devices only when necessary. For instance, turn off wireless printers or TVs when not in use to conserve bandwidth and reduce network strain.
