Computer Wireless Information

To set up your computer for a wireless connection, it is necessary to first have your Brown ID, authID (the series of letters which identify you to the Brown computer system), and password. It is also necessary, the first time you set up the wireless, to be connected via ethernet cord within the Brown system. Open a browser to <cloudpath.brown.edu>. This is so your computer can be identified within the directory. Follow the instructions there and set up for Brown Secure. If, by any chance, you make a mistake and have to restart the process of wireless authentication, you need to wipe the memory of your failed attempt before the wireless will configure correctly.

After you configure your computer to wireless. you no longer need to be connnected to the Brown system by ethernet. If you have any problems, see Leslie Tobias Olsen right away or call the Computer Help Desk at 863-4357.
