In addition to a separate wi-fi access for students only, Information Technology has implemented a separate wi-fi for gaming consoles, such as Xbox, PlayStation, etc. This wi-fi network is built strictly for video game use. The network name is Wesley_WGN, and the password is available by contacting Information Technology at 736-4199, or email to support(at)wesley.edu. You must provide your room number for access. This network is NOT available for the Wii due to security restrictions on the game console. In order to connect your Wii, you must connect using a network cable and the Wii network adapter.
