WiFi Internet Service

Information about the wireless network, coverage and capacity around the Dominican campus.


Dominican has wireless network access for faculty, staff and student use.  To use the wireless network you will need to:

  1. Connect your computer to the WIFI network called DOMINICAN-WIRELESS
  2. Open a browser (Firefox, Chrome, Internet Explorer or Safari). 
  3. The first time your computer tries to connect to our WIFI network you will be redirected to a registration page.
  4. Click on the link that applies to you.
  5. Enter your Dominican User ID and password. 
  6. At this point your computer will be reconnected to the appropriate network.
  7. You should exit your browser and restart your browser and it will be working. Sometimes it works without exiting the browser, but it always works if you exit and restart the browser.
  8. Students and Employees will be able to access the WiFi network for 5 months. After five months, you will have to re-register your device.

The maps below show wireless coverage for 2017/18. In fall 2019 we are surveying campus and planning additional enhancement. 

Dominican Wifi Coverage Map

We have seen that when people move around on campus that their computer, especially Apple computers, tend to "remember" the last WIFI antenna they used and do not reconnect to the closest/fastest antenna.  To fix this we recommend that you simply turn WIFI off and then turn it on again.  When WIFI turns on again your computer will connect to the closest/fastest antenna.

For Apple Laptops:

  1. Look for the WIFI icon on the top of the screen.
  2. Click on it and click "Turn WIFI Off"
  3. Click on it again and "Turn WIFI On"

For iPhones and iPads:

  1. Go to SETTINGS.
  2. Turn Airplane Mode ON
  3. Turn Airplane Mode OFF
