MGuest WiFi Network
This entry should be read by both PERC staff and Tech Squad volunteers.
I wanted to let you know about some changes to the log-in process for the MGuest wireless network. First, I learned that Internet Explorer 9 is not supported. When using IE9, devices will connect, however, they will be redirected back to the login page and not the home page.
As a result, please choose a browser other than Internet Explorer. Do this by clicking on the Globe in the lower left corner of the screen and selecting a browser from the list. I have found that Mozilla Firefox works well.
After opening the browser, the MGuest welcome page will appear. This is the yellow sheet with the heading Mott Family Network; it has been revised and is now only one page.
Once a name and email address have been entered and the "agree to the terms and conditions" ACCEPT button is clicked, a box will appear that applies to faculty, staff and students only; click OK to close the box. Click again on the ACCEPT button to be redirected to the appropriate home page. (For borrowed devices, this would be the UMHS home page.)
I have revised the Using the MFN Laptop sheet to reflect these changes. Please do not hesitate to let me know if you have any questions or encounter any problems. I am sure that after performing these new steps once or twice, you will be pleased with this much simpler and faster log-in process!
Thank you again for all your help!
