MSB will be receiving a wireless upgrade on April 29th and 30th, just before the Spring Semester starts.
For faculty, staff, and students the new wireless name will be “MWireless”, for guests the new name will be “MGuest”. The legacy names, “UMF_Secure” and “UMF_Guest”, will no longer be available anywhere on campus.
To Connect to MWireless:
Phones and Mobile Devices – simply scan and choose the “MWireless” connection. Enter username as “firstname.lastname@example.org” and password. (If prompted to accept a certificate, simply accept it.)
