Connect Android to Brown's Wireless Network

Authors list

If you're having difficulty logging onto the wireless network, make sure your username and password are working by going to and logging in. You can contact the IT Service Center for username and password issues or you continue to have issues connecting to the WiFi.


Go To

While on Brown-Guest, connect to the wireless as shown below. Go to and follow the onscreen steps.

Brown (secure)

Brown (secure) WiFi uses your Brown username and password. Make sure to use your username in all lowercase letters. Using an uppercase letter will cause an authentication issue.


Eduroam uses your Brown and password. This is your short Brown username, not your Brown email address.
