Follow the following steps to get your iPhone working on the Vanderbilt Wi-Fi network. The network your are connecting to is secure and will require you to enter your vnetid and e-password to work. These are what you use to retrieve your email. Additionally, you will need to obtain the proper SSID to compete this process. IF you know what it is then feel free to follow this procedure. If you do not know the SSID or network name then you will need to ask Richard Lescallette, Josh Keckley, or Nolan Smith to obtain the SSID to use. Please email one of us to get the SSID sent to you. We choose not to display this information in the tech tip for security reasons.

STEP FIVE (Confirm Connection)
You will be this screen on your iPhone if you have followed all the steps correctly. As you can see there is a lock icon next to the network name and the current signal strength. Depending on where you are the signal strength may vary. This is normal but sometimes the signal gets week enough the phone will revert to the 3G or Edge network. Also sometimes it helps to simply turn the wi-fi off and back on again if you feel you are having issues with connectivity.
