Wi-Fi Getting Connected

Problem/Question

How can I connect to WiFi on the UM-Dearborn Campus?


Overview

UM Wi-Fi networks allow students, faculty, staff, and guests to connect wireless devices to the internet and to UM networks. There are four Wi-Fi networks on the Dearborn campus.

MWireless
Students, faculty, staff, and sponsored affiliates with a valid U-M email address and password should use MWireless when on campus because it is secure and encrypted. MWireless users may be blocked from visiting known malicious websites.

eduroam
eduroam is available to students, faculty and staff both here and when visiting other universities and colleges, and should be configured through MSetup before visiting other institutions. Users of eduroam can seamlessly transition between participating universities around the world. Note: When visiting other eduroam institutions, you are subject to their internet acceptable use policies.

MGuest
MGuest provides basic internet access for university guests. Students, faculty, and staff are encouraged to use MWireless as their primary network, as it is secure and encrypted. Access to certain university resources, including academic journals, is limited. Guests must agree to the university's terms of service and devices that cannot display a captive portal are not able to connect.

MSetup
MSetup helps you to register and connect your devices to the U-M wireless campus network. When connecting your home devices such as a laptop, phone or tablet you can configure your devices by using the MWireless or eduroam for network access.


Solution

Use MSetup

The easiest way for faculty, staff, students, or sponsored affiliates with a valid U-M email address to configure personal devices for campus wireless networks is to use MSetup.

Manual WiFi Configuration

If you are unable to use MSetup, you may configure your device manually.
