DragonFly Wireless Network
Please note: The DragonFly network (in lieu of the DragonFly3 network) is used to connect game consoles, smart TVs (including Apple TV, Roku, Fire TV, etc) and other home entertainment systems and appliances that are commonly found in the Drexel residence halls and are unable to connect to DragonFly3.
Computers, phones and tablets should connect to DragonFly3 not DragonFly.
Some Wi-Fi game consoles and network appliances cannot work with the security needed to access DragonFly3. Only connect to DragonFly if your device does not support the WiFi security standards WPA2 (enterprise) and 802.1X user name authentication.
