All WFUCC Faculty/Staff/Students can create temporary wireless credentials so that guests can connect to our WiFi. Wireless credentials can be created in advance of a guest’s arrival or on the fly as needed.

A few things to keep in mind:

  • The same credentials can be used by multiple people attending the same event
  • Unique credentials should be generated for each event or group visiting the WFUCC
  • Credentials should be generated so that they align with the duration of the guest’s visit
  • Each set of credentials is tied to it’s creator - only that person can extend, suspend, delete or reset the password.

Creating Wireless Credentials

Open any browser and navigate to the Netguest Page located at https://netguest.wfu.edu

  1. Enter your WFU username and password.
  2. Complete the Guest Information form as follows:
    • First & Last Name:
      The system creates the username using the first character of the First Name field and the all characters in the Last Name field. If you wish to create credentials with a specific username, please use the following method: 
      Desired Username: mbainterview
      First Name: m
      Last Name bainterview
    • Email: use your email address
    • Phone: use your phone number
  3. Under the Access Information section, select a duration or start/end dates that best align with your guest’s visit.
  4. Click Create to generate the credentials and share the username and password with the WFUCC guest. Please note that passwords are case sensitive. 

Managing Wireless Credentials

The WFUCC member who creates a guest’s credentials can manage any sponsored guest account using the following steps.

  1. Return to the Netguest Page located at https://netguest.wfu.edu
  2. Enter your WFU username and password.
  3. Click the “Manage Accounts” button
  4. Click on the username of the account you wish to manage
  5. Use the Extend, Edit, Suspend, Delete, or Reset Password buttons as needed.   We recommend using the “Suspend” option to manage access for groups with recurring visits. 

Instruct WFUCC guests to login using the following steps:

  1. The Guest selects "WFUvisitor" SSID and clicks Connect
  2. Open any browser and the web page where the Guest logs in.
  3. Enter the the WFU Visitor credentials assigned to join the WFUvisitor wireless network.
