Get Connected

WiFi Certificate Update, August 2012


If you use a personally-owned mobile device (laptop, iPad, etc) to connect to the Clarion University wireless network, you may be presented with a security alert or certificate approval message the next time you connect.  You can safely accept the new certificate to connect to the wireless network.  You should only be prompted once the first time you connect.  All subsequent connections will automatically connect without displaying a warning message.

Prior to the security alert, your system may prompt you to enter your username and password.  This is normal and you can enter them safely.

The affected wireless networks are:

  • cu-wifi-secure (Clarion campus)
  • resnet-wifi-secure (Resnet)
  • ven-wifi-secure (Venango campus)

The following are examples of the dialog box displayed on various operating systems:

Windows 7


Click the CONNECT button to continue.


Windows XP


Click the OK button to continue.


Apple IOS (iPad and iPhone)


Click the ACCEPT button to continue.


Apple Mac OS X


Click the CONTINUE button to continue.

If you have a different operating system or your system displays a different message, please contact the Computing Services Help Desk at or x2640.
