Laptop Setup Instructions

  • Wireless

    There are three wireless networks available, a secured network called MWireless, an unsecured network called MGuest, and eduroam. We strongly recommend setting up the secured network MWireless.

    In most cases, you should be able to simply choose MWireless from your list of available networks and connect to it. After logging in with your uniqname and UMICH password, you may be presented with a dialog to accept a certificate. Do this, and you will be connected. If you run into problems, you can try installing the ITS Wireless Configuration Tool
