Please Note: As another step in enhancing our customer experience, MSU IT Services is consolidating all technology help information into one repository. This process will begin Friday, April 15, 2016, with MSU IT moving all public facing techbase.msu.edu documents to the MSU IT Service Desk application. The techbase.msu.edu service will be retired in the future and replaced with a new help portal. More information will be shared as timelines are confirmed.
This document will help you set up wireless access to MSUnet on your on-campus iPad, iPhone, or iPod Touch.
Screenshots for this document were made using an iPad running iOS 3.2.2.
Before You BeginYou must already have a valid MSU NetID for full MSUnet access. Limited guest access is available through the MSUnet Guest SSID if you do not have a valid MSU NetID.
Step 1: Open SafariClick on the Safari icon on your home screen, and browse to any open website (for example, http://www.apple.com/support/ipad or http://wireless.msu.edu).
Step 2: Select a Wi-Fi NetworkIf your device isn't already connected, you will see a menu of available wireless networks.
- If you are a guest of MSU and do not have an MSU NetID, select MSUnet Guest. Additional information about guest wireless access is available in Techbase article TB4254.
- If you have an MSU NetID and would like to have full access to the MSUnet Wireless network, select MSUnet. Continue with Step 3.
Step 3: Register your device on the networkYou must register your your iOS-based device on the MSU network to use it with MSUNet.
Special note: When you log in to the DHCP page, be sure you use all lowercase for your NetID. Devices using the iOS (iPad, iPod Touch, iPhone) have auto-fill capitalization. Unless you modify the entry for NetID to all lowercase, logging in to the DHCP registration site will fail. For instance, "Sparty" will fail - correcting the entry to "sparty" (all lowercase) will resolve the login failure.
