 Wireless Setup Guides

After your PennWest Clarion issued username and password has been reset or changed, your device will need the updated credentials in order to reconnect to the wireless network. Windows, OSX, and Apple iOS devices will automatically prompt for updated credentials. Android devices may need to be manually updated. To do this, go to Settings -> WiFi -> [network name] -> Edit and update the username and/or password fields.

Note: It may also be necessary to update your credentials within other applications (i.e. Email, VPN, etc.). Please consult manufacturer documentation specific to your device for further instructions.
