Connecting to the eduroam and MichiganTechGuest Wireless Networks

To connect to wireless, you will need an SSL-capable browser and a WiFi certified 802.11b/g/n/ac wireless card for your laptop or mobile device.  You will need to configure your device to access one of the following wireless networks:

  • The eduroam Wireless network, which is the choice for Michigan Tech students, staff, and faculty because it allows users to automatically connect at eduroam partner institutions.
  • The MichiganTechGuest Wireless Network, which is used by guests or Michigan Tech students, staff, and faculty who have devices that do not utilize WPA technology.
