What to do if you cannot get connected to BereaSecure

Using a laptop computer:

  1. Turn your WiFi adapter off, wait 5 seconds, and then turn it on again. (Sometimes Windows-based clients need a full reset of the WiFi adapter before they can properly negotiate a secure connection.)
  2. Reboot your computer and then try to connect to BereaSecure
  3. Remove the profile* for BereaSecure and attempt to connect again. If you are not sure how to do this we would be glad to help you, just stop by with your device whenever it’s convenient for you.
  4. Mac users only: Delete the keychain entry for BereaSecure and then attempt to connect again.
* this process varies from one device to the next – if you are not familiar with this process please bring your device to the TRC Help Desk for assistance.

NOTE: Not all devices can connect to a secure wireless network. If you are using an E-Ink version of the Kindle please read this article for more information. Gaming consoles and other personal devices (Roku, Apple TV, etc.) also do not support enterprise security and will only connect to the ResNet wireless network.
