When you have a guest on campus and they need wireless access

The details will vary depending on what device you use, but here is the overview:

  1. Set your device to join the network MDS-public
  2. In the Login screen that appears, click “Create Account
  3. Fill in the information, and then you’ll be allowed on the network. It’s a temporary account that will expire after some time.

If you don’t see the login screen after connecting:

  1. Try to get on the web. Your browser should automatically go to the account screen.
  2. Windows 7 [and maybe others] has a little dialog box that pops up after you try to connect, down on the bottom right, that says something like “more info may be needed – click here“. So click there, your default web browser will pop up, and you’ll be taken to the login screen.
