How do I connect my wireless printer?

July 1, 2019

Wireless printers are unable to meet the security and encryption requirements of OSUwireless

Consequently, they are unable to use their wireless network printing capabilities on any university network.  You are encouraged to connect directly to your printer via USB cable.  This cable can be found at any technology supply store and many retail stores and is often provided with the printer.

Do not attempt to connect wireless printers by creating a personal wireless network.

OSU Wireless is a secure wireless network for the use of students, faculty and staff. Please refrain from connecting personal routers or setting up personal networks to connect wireless printers or other devices.  Doing so may cause network disruptions, decrease in quality of service, and may also introduce security risks both for yourself and other residence hall students around you.
