Using your Phone/Tablet with WiFi at Pepperdine

Many new students don’t realize that if they register their devices as Data Plan Blues“GUEST USER” on the university wireless network they will need to register again the next day.  Guest WiFi network registration expires every 24 hours.

If you register as an authenticated user (enter your wavenet ID and password), your registration will last much longer (up to a year if you are a frequent user on the network).

Note that with the WiFi data, you will save on your device’s data plan limits.

Once the temporary “Guest” registration expires after 24 hours, make sure you select “Current Students, Faculty, and Staff” on the https://wavesconnect.pepperdine.edu site.

NOTE: you cannot re-register a device after it is already registered.  It must time-out first so don’t try to re-register until your Guest access expires.  If you run into trouble, please call the University Help Desk at (310) 506-HELP or 310-506-4357.
