Follow these instructions to configure your Macintosh laptop for use on the MSUM wireless network.
In order to configure and use the Wireless services provided by MSUM, you must:
Step 1: Connect to the MSUM Wireless Network
The wireless network "msum-wireless" is the same for all areas on campus. To select the network, go to the Airport icon in the top right hand side of your menu bar (usually next to the Volume control icon) and select "msum-wireless".
When you connect on campus, you should connect to the "msum-wireless" network. If you connect to any other network on campus, please disconnect from it immediately and notify the IT department at #2603. Any other wireless network on campus is most likely not authorized and maybe be incorrectly setup leaving your privacy and personal data at risk.
Step 2: Install VPN Client Software
MSUM uses Cisco VPN software to encrypt your connection and authenticate users to the Wireless network providing you additional data security.
