Connecting + Driver Support
All University-managed devices are Wi-Fi 6 ready, but it’s so advanced that some personal devices you bring to campus may need a driver update to tap into this enhanced wireless experience.
All devices with wireless cards can connect at any campus Wi-Fi hot spot, but boosting to Wi-Fi 6 in the Wi-Fi 6-enabled locations may require a hardware update for your personal device.
Driver updates come from Apple directly via the built-in OS Software Update.
We recommend downloading driver updates for your specific device’s wireless card directly from the manufacturer's Support > Downloads/Drivers section. Some manufacturers also offer a utility you can install to scan for and download available driver updates - search for "Support Assist" or "System Update" on the manufacturer's website.
Or call 916-278-7337 during open hours.
