Environment

Non-MCC owned devices

Resolution

Use the following information when connecting a device to one of Macomb's wireless networks:

  • mGuest
    • "Open" (unauthenticated) access for staff, students and visitors.
    • Speeds and internet resource availability optimized for non-academic use.
    • Even for staff, this SSID will meet most needs.

  • MyMacomb
    • Authenticated access for student, faculty and staff personally owned devices.
    • Requires login with your Macomb network (MyMacomb portal) credentials.
    • Provides Internet and Macomb resource access identical to 'wired', on-campus connection.
    • Provides faculty and students open access to full academic content.

MyMacomb authentication: Every device handles authentication differently; please consult your device's instruction manual for how to connect to a secured network.

 Note: Once your Macomb credentials have been entered on your device, Accept the security certificate when prompted. Your device must install the security certificate to use the MyMacomb secure Wireless channel.
