Toggle your connection

  • Turn your wireless connection off, wait 10 seconds then turn it back on.

    • This refreshes your connection to the closest wireless access point.

  • See each network for more detailed troubleshooting steps.

Printers & speakers

In most cases, wireless printers will connect to york-connect, though they sometimes have unresolvable issues. Please bring a cable to connect your computer directly to your printer, so that you can print without WiFi.

Unfortunately, we're presently unable to support Sonos wireless speakers.
