October 15, 2017: Due to the increase in amount of WiFi issues that are been reported by residents, Shaw has come up with a few tips and tricks to help solve WiFi issues that you may be experiencing.

  • Do not use a 3rd party router; this will cause a drop in your WiFi connection. Please use the WiFi modem that was installed in your room by a Shaw technician
  • Use the username and password that is found on the modem, do not rename your wireless name or change the password, this will cause your devise to lose the WiFi connection
  • If your modem has power, but your devise cannot connect to WiFi try a factory reset. The instructions are attached

If you have gone through all the above tips and tricks and you are still experiencing WiFi issues, please submit a Maintenance Request through the SFU Housing Portal. Please provide a brief description explaining your WiFi issues and include your modem’s serial number (Passphrase).
