Connecting Your Devices

  • "BW_Wireless" is the network you will use to register each of your devices (required).  This is a one-time registration process.
  • "BW_Stinger" is the primary campus network you will use after a device is registered and authorized.

  • "BW_Hive" is exclusively for gaming systems, streaming devices, and smart devices.

  • "BW_Guest" (low bandwidth) provides limited access to the internet for campus guests and cannot access BW systems.

Before connecting to the BW wireless network, all devices must be individually registered.  This is a one-time process.

On or before Tuesday, September 22, 2020, all BW email accounts will be upgraded to REQUIRE 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.
