Choosing the right wireless network for my device

‚ÄčParents and Guests

MichiganTechGuest is for guests, such as parents or community members.

If you are a Michigan Tech student, do not connect to MichiganTechGuest. If you have connected to MichiganTechGuest, you will need to forget/remove all Michigan Tech wireless networks from your list, then restart your device to reconnect to the appropriate Michigan Tech network.

Computers and mobile devices (wireless)

Connect to the eduroam network.

Consoles (wireless)

Connect to MichiganTechOpen. You must pre-register the device in Clearpass.

IOT Devices

Connect streaming and smart devices to MichiganTechIOT.

Please follow the instructions at Connecting a Device to Resnet for the specific steps. You'll need to register and enable Airgroup on both your streaming/smart device and your set-up device, typically your phone, in ClearPass, for the set-up process.

Ethernet ports in rooms

Each room in the residential halls has one active ethernet port. Please look for the ethernet jack marked with a sticker. We do not change which port is the active one, nor do we add more. For more information please read: Connecting a device to Reset.

Any switches you use must be unmanaged. There are a limited number of ethernet switches available at the residential hall front desks, available on a first come, first served basis.

If you use a router, disable its wireless signal output.

Spectrum U

You do not have access in your room to SpectrumU in DHH, McNair, or Wads. The TVs in the kitchenettes do have access to SpectrumU.
