Getting Connected to the UNCW Wired Network
Faculty & Staff
Connect to the wired Network with your UNCW username and password when prompted. If you have any issues, please contact the TAC at 910-962-4357.
Students In Residence Halls
Students with Windows computers (does not pertain to Macs) will need to adjust the settings on your machines so that your wired access will work. Choose either step 1a or 1b.
Step 1a. Download Script
We recommend using Firefox or Chrome to download these scripts. If you are using Internet Explorer (IE), additional steps may be needed to run the script.
Save the .exe file to your computer and then run it. Your computer must be plugged into a wired port when you actually run the script. If you cannot connect to the UNCW wired network, we recommend that you plug into a wired port, connect to hawkwifi and save and run the script.
- Windows 7 Script (Save to computer first, then run script. Computer must be plugged into a wired port when you run it.)
- Windows 8 Script (Save to computer first, then run script. Computer must be plugged into a wired port when you run it.)
NOTE: If you see the following warning message, click "Yes."
Step 1b. Follow Step by Step Instructions
Plug your computer into the data jack in your residence hall room and connect to the Internet. Enter your UNCW username and password when prompted.
