Tech Tip: Rogue Devices

Some personal devices emit a problematic Wi-Fi signal. These devices interfere with E-Town’s Wi-Fi signal and slow down the connection of nearby phones and computers. Please be sure to turn off wireless on:

  • Wireless printers
  • Cellphone or personal hot spots
  • Network routers
  • Google Chromecast devices
  • Other devices that actively use channels 2.4 GHz (802.11b/g/n) and/or 5 GHz (802.11a/n/ac).

Instructions on turning off wireless printers can be found here. For all other devices, please check the manufacturer’s website for instructions.

Please connect these devices via cables and refrain from using their wireless features.
