To properly configure your device to connect to WolfieNet Secure,  use the getwolfienet.com site.  This will create your wifi profile with the correct, most updated certificate, SecureW2, so that you can connect again and again without having to go through the process of signing in every time.  

About SecureW2

SecureW2 is an onboarding tool to help us get onto the campus' official wifi.  To keep you and your devices cyber-safe, it is highly recommended that you connect using SecureW2 and to be wary of other wifi certificates that may appear as popups on your computers and devices as they may not be a vetted service.
