Accessing the Campus Wireless Network
Posted by Darren Olson on 22 August 2013 07:43 AM
Below is a list of both unencrypted and encryption wireless connections across campus. If you need assistance, please stop by with your laptop at IT Central, 108 Old Main.
Encrypted connections (Preferred as it is more secure)
- NDUS-Statewide - Used for all North Dakota University System staff, faculty and students. This wireless network is located across the entire campus. Users login with their campus connection credentials.
- eduroam - EDUROAM (education roaming) is a secured wireless network service that allows students, staff, and faculty to use their home institution's wireless credentials to access wireless network services, when visiting other EDUROAM participating institutions, without having to set up a guest account.
To get connected login with your campus connection userID + @minotstateu.edu (Example: firstname.lastname@example.org) and your campus password. Note that the @minotstateu.edu is not an email address, it is telling it you are a minot state staff/faculty/student. You may recieve a warning about a certificate, just choose connect anyways as it cannot verify until it gets an internet connection.
If you have problems you may bring your device to Old Main 108 for setup. To see a map of participating institutions visit the Eduroam-US website. (For Android devices be sure to set "EAP method" to PEAP the "Phase 2 authentication" to MSCHAPV2)
- Guest@MSU - Used for temporary access for campus visitors. This wireless network is located across the entire campus. Guests will need a pass to connect to this network. Please visit your sponsoring department to request access.
- GameConsoles - Used for XBOX, Playstation, Chromecast, Roku, Wii , Blu-Ray Players, etc.. This wireless network is located in the campus dormitory's. Please visit http://www.minotstateu.edu/wireless/gameconsoles/ to register your device.
