Basically, connecting to BishopNet, our campus WiFi, is a two-step process:

  1. Select BishopNet from the list of available networks.
    • Enter your OWU username and password, and
    • Accept or trust the security certificate, if prompted.
    • NOTE: Your device will likely tell you that, while you have a secure connection, you have no internet access–That’s OK!
    • Before going to step #2, disable your cellular or mobile data. You just want to be connected to BishopNet–nothing else.
  2. Go to, click on the “REGISTER this device on BishopNet WiFi” link.
    • Enter your OWU username and password, and
    • Either wait the 5 minutes, or disable your WiFi for 20 -30 seconds, then reconnect to BishopNet to allow it to obtain a full internet connection.
    • You can now re-enable your cellular/mobile data connection.
