Q: How do I get connected to the ASU Wireless Network?

A: ASU students should connect to the SSID/Wireless Network name “Student” or “myasu”. When connecting to the “Student” network each student must enter their PSK to connect. In “myasu” locations, you will continue to use “Hornetsnation” as your password. 

Q: How do I add or remove devices?

A: If at any time you have a device connected and would like to connect a different device. You must choose to disconnect the currently connected device from the network to connect a new device.

Q: What is a PSK?

A: A PSK stands for Pre-Shared Key. This is your password to access the ASU “Student” wireless network. Your PSK is defined by the following schema: the first 4 letters of your last name CAPITALIZED + the last 5 digits of your social security number. Here’s an example of the PSK schema:

Name - John Smith          SSN - 123-41-2345        John’s PSK would be: SMIT12345


Please sign in using your Campus-Wide ID (CWID) number as your user name and entering your unique password. Your CWID number is the same as your Student ID number.  If you are prompted to change your password, click on the "Change Password Link" and follow the directions. Secure and keep your password confidential for your protection.  If you are experiencing any problems, contact the OTS Service Desk at 334.229.4560.
