Setting up Wi-Fi under Windows
- Your device supports WPA2
- Windows 7 or higher
- To download the WWU installation package or the certificate, you can use our guest WiFi GuestOnCampus.
- We recommend that you use the WWU installation package for setting up Wi-Fi, as this will automatically set up both WiFis of the WWU (wwu, eduroam). If this is not possible, please follow the instructions "Manual installation of the Wi-Fi Certificate" first and then "Manual Configuration of the Wi-Fi" for each SSID.
Automatic WiFi Configuration with the WWU Installation Package (Recommended)
1. Downloading the Installation Package
Download the following ZIP-File: WWU WiFi Installation Package. Extract the file to your computer by right-clicking on the ZIP file and selecting "Extract all".
2. Installation of the Package
Open the unpacked folder, right-click on the "install-wlan-wwu" file and select "Run as administrator". A black window appears, which closes automatically after a few seconds. (Note: IF "wwu" (or "eduroam") do not appear in the list, you are not in range of the network or your WiFi is disabled.)
3. Login to the WiFi
After the window has closed, click on the WiFi symbol in the lower right corner, then on "wwu" (or uni-ms or "eduroam") and on "Connect". In the appearing login window, enter your university e-mail address (YourWWU-ID@uni-muenster.de) and your network access password and confirm with "OK".
