Connect to Brown's Guest Wireless Network

Authors list

The Brown-Guest network is availble to all Brown Guests. 

How to Connect

  1. Open the wireless settings on your device.
  2. Choose the wireless network Brown-Guest from your list of wireless networks.  
  3. When you open a web browser, you will be prompted to agree to the terms to start using the internet.

Your connection will last for 7 days, after which you will be prompted to agree to the terms again.

If you have a Brown username and password, we recommend connecting to Brown's secure wireless network instead of the guest network. Brown's guest wireless network is not secure (unencrypted). Your bandwidth will be limited.  You cannot access library resources, keyed software, and other restricted Brown resources.

Browserless Devices (Gaming Systems, Printers, etc.)

If you are member of the Brown community, you can connect browserless devices to the Brown-Guest network; these are devices that are unable to connect to Brown. Instructions: Connect a Browserless Device (e.g., gaming system, printer) to the Brown Network
