Wireless Networking - Big Rapids Campus

The Ferris State University wireless network is accessible for all faculty, staff, administration, and students. It is currently available within many buildings, including the common areas of the residence halls. For more details view the quick reference on the wireless networks.

When Connecting to FerrisWiFi

If your device asks to select an encryption, select WPA2 before entering your username and password. 

Supported Public Networks

When searching for available public networks, be sure you connect to a supported network device. Ferris access points are named the same throughout campus to allow for quick identification.

Note: Information Technology Services is in the process of implementing the Bulldogs, Bulldogs_Guest, and Bulldogs_Devices Service Set Identifiers or SSIDs. Use these SSIDs where available to register your devices and use the Internet. You may need to register your device twice if  you require WiFi access in different buildings that are not on the same WiFi SSID (i.e. Bulldogs vs. FerrisWiFi). 

Unsupported Networks

While searching for a wireless network, you may come across a number of unsecured connections; the names will likely be Linksys, D-link, or Workgroup. Due to security concerns, the University does not support any unsecured connections. Be advised that the use of an unsecured network by a person other than the network owner is considered by some branches of law enforcement as illegal.
