Troubleshooting Q&A

Although your device my indicate that you are connected to LIUNET, you MUST log in or else the connection is not active. In the event the login page doesn’t present itself, open a browser and try to go to any website. If you are not logged in, the network will automatically redirect you to the login page.

Check to see if you can log into your email or MYLIU using a different device or on a computer using a wired connection. If you are unable to gain entry it is possible that your credentials may have expired and you need to have your password reset.

Sometimes a device or computer can get confused about what network connection it is on. Close all web browsers and turn off your wifi. Wait 15 seconds then turn your wifi back on. Reconnect to LIUNET and login.
