DragonFly Wireless Network
DragonFly is for devices and appliances (outside of the residence halls) that cannot connect to DragonFly3 because they do not support WPA2 and 8021.X enterprise authentication. If a device fits this category it can be connected to the DragonFly Wireless Network. The Wi-Fi address of all devices connected to DragonFly must be registered in the Network Registration System before they connect.
All computers, phones and tablets should connect to DragonFly3 network instead of using the DragonFly network.
Students connecting appliances and devices in the Residence Halls should use DragonFly-Play network instead of using the DragonFly network.
How to Connect
Step One: Register Your Device's Wi-Fi Address with the Network Registration System
All wireless devices have a Wi-Fi address. The Wi-Fi address is also known as a Wireless MAC Address, Wireless Hardware Address, or Wireless Physical Address. Wi-Fi addresses are 12 characters in length and are usually displayed by the operating system (or a sticker on appliances) in one of the following formats:
Find the Wi-FI address for your device and write it down. If you can't find the Wi-Fi address check with the user manual that came with your device for assistance.
Use the following link to register the Wi-Fi address, you will need to login with your Drexel One userid and password.
Before you leave the registration system, be sure to write down the DragonFly network password that you're given; you'll need to enter this password in your device before it connects to the network.
Register Your Devices Wi-Fi Address
Note: To register your device, you must be connected to the campus network. If you are trying to register from an off-campus location, be sure to launch VPN before attempting to register.
Step Two: Configure your Device to connect to Dragonfly
Follow the instructions that came with your device to configure the Wi-Fi network.
- Connect to the Wi-Fi network named dragonfly.
- Configure the Wi-Fi network password provided in step one (above) in your device where prompted.
