Connecting Your Devices

Access to BW WiFi

ALL devices used on the Baldwin Wallace wireless network need to be individually registered using Cisco ISE network setup assistant.  

BW Hosted Wireless Networks

To connect a new computer, locate the wifi icon on the taskbar in the lower right corner of your computer.  Select "BW_Wireless" from the list of networks.  This will launch the registration process.  Download the software and run the setup assistant.  Successful configuration will move you to the "BW_Stinger" secure network.  (For Chromebooks, see below.)

 

To connect a mobile phone, open your phone's wifi settings and select "BW_Wireless" from the list of networks.  This will launch the registration process.  Download the app and run the setup assistant.  Successful configuration will move you to the "BW_Stinger" secure network. 
 

To connect a Game System, Streaming Device, IoT device (such as Alexa), or Chromebook, go to https://mydevices.bw.edu to register your device.  Select the "BW_Hive" network.  This network is exclusively for these devices.

Guests visiting BW should select the "BW_Guest" network for temporary access to the BW wireless network.

NEW:  Multi-Factor Authentication (MFA)

BW now requires students to use Multi-Factor Authentication (MFA).  This is a security practice that verifies your identity by requiring multiple credentials.  In most cases, it sends you a text message with an access code.  Set up is easy with these instructions.
