Are you able to connect to Wi-Fi, but you have been kicked out? Here's some quick tips!

Move to another location

  • If you are in a room, try moving to another part of the room the signal may be stronger to reconnect the Wi-Fi.
  • If there is another person who is connected to the Wi-Fi, move to that area.

Walk to another area of the room

  • If moving to another part of the room does not help, exit the room and walk to one end of the hall.
    If you are still unable to reconnect, walk to the other end of the hall where the signal may be stronger.

Restart your device

  • Restarting your device may provide it with a clean slate to reconnect.
