Wireless Routers

In the Webster Village Apartments (WVA), students are permitted to set up their own wireless networks. It is the student's responsibility to make sure these devices are set up properly (see the diagram below) so that they do not interfere with the Webster network. If at any time a personal wireless router impedes, interferes with, impairs, or otherwise causes harm to the Webster University networks and systems, IT and Residential Life reserve the right to remove personal wireless routers. Failure to comply with a request to terminate the use of a personal wireless router will result in disciplinary action.

Students in East Hall, West Hall, and Maria Hall are NOT permitted to set up their own wireless networks, as they can access the University's wireless network.

Proper Router Setup

Router Setup

Depending on the type of router you have, the Internet port may also be called, WAN or Cable/DSL.

NEVER plug the cable from the wall port into any of the numbered ports or a port labeled LAN on your router!
