Wireless Internet Access : Connection

Step 1 On your system select and connect to the network named "MSUWirelessNetwork". Once your system shows that you are connected, open your favorite browser and go to a site off-campus such as http://google.com or http://yahoo.com. The system should then redirect you to our wireless connection portal as shown below.

Step 2 Click the "Please click here to connect to the network" link and you will be given the choice of registering your wireless device with the MSU network as either an authenticated user or a guest. If you are a registered student or are a current MSU employee (staff or faculty), you should use the "Network Login" section of the page shown below to authenticate using your MSU credentials. For students, this is the MSU Portal username and password but the username must be entered in the form of STUDENT\portalusername. For staff and faculty, this will be your network credentials with which normally log into campus systems. If you are visiting the campus you can use the "Register as a Guest" section to register your device and gain temporary access to the Internet only.

Good News You will only have to go through this process once per semester for each device that you connect to the wireless network! At the end of each semester the device registrations will expire and you will need to simply follow this procedure once more when you return to campus for the next semester.
