Queens College OIT has implemented an improved Wireless Network called QWIFI. This network will provide longer login sessions, and the ability to support many more people simultaneously. In addition, you can register devices such as game consoles, DVRs, and other set top boxes only. Please see instructions below.
To use QWIFI with your QC_Username:
On your device wireless networks list select QWIFI to connect.
Open a web browser (Chrome, Internet Explorer, Firefox, Safari) to see this login page
The Queens College login screen will appear.
Log-in using your QC_Username (except guests, who should follow QWIFI guest instructions below).
QWIFI guest instructions:
A temporary password will be sent to you via email and also via SMS to your mobile phone.
Enter the account and password in the login box.
To register a set top box or game console ONLY:
You will need to know the MAC address of your device. The MAC address is frequently located on a sticker on your device possibly on the bottom or back. Sometimes it is listed in the wireless setup for your set top box. It is a hexadecimal number and will appear in one of these two formats: ab-cd-ef-01-23-45 or ab:cd:ef:01:23:45. After locating the MAC address enter it at this URL: https://qwifi.qc.cuny.edu/guest/auth_login.php?target=%2Fguest%2F
You will periodically need to register the device again. If you come back before the registration expires, you can simply ask for more time.
Who do I call for assistance:
If you have any questions or need assistance connecting to QWIFI, please contact the OIT Help Desk by phone: 718.997.4444, E-mail: firstname.lastname@example.org
