In order to access Canvas and other important resources, make sure that you are connected to the BYUI network, not the BYUI_Visitor network. For network security, the BYUI_Visitor network restricts access to some sites.
The BYU-Idaho Visitor Wi-Fi is intended primarily for ecclesiastical leaders serving on campus. This network allows bishops and stake presidents to process missionary applications and endorsements without the need to log into the campus network. In addition, this network may benefit other campus visitors like non-student dependents, parents of students, and various conference attendees.
The BYU-Idaho Visitor Wi-Fi network is filtered like other campus networks, and the types of websites accessible from this network are more limited than the current BYU-Idaho Wi-Fi. For example, popular streaming sites such as Netflix and Hulu are blocked. More importantly, Canvas cannot be accessed on BYUI_Visitor Wi-Fi. Users attempting to access a blocked site may see either an “Application Blocked” page or the page simply will not load. Because of the restrictions that have been imposed on the BYU-Idaho Visitor Wi-Fi, students and employees will find the current BYU-Idaho Wi-Fi to be better suited to their needs. They should not view the Visitor Wi-Fi as a non-authenticated replacement or an alternative.
