How do I connect my console or smart TV to the internet?


When would you use this?

Many devices that connect to the Framingham State University wireless network are not designed to process the encryption the University uses to establish secure connections over the FSU Wireless network. To accommodate these types of devices, FSU allows students to register these devices ahead of time and connect them to the FSU Guest network. The security used on FSU Guest is much easier for some devices to process.
