These instructions cover connecting a Mac to one of the EECS production wireless networks. Your host must be registered for use on the EECS production wireless network to use these instructions. Please see here for a description of coverage of the EECS production wireless network. See our Wireless Network page for a full description of our available wireless networks.
In general, we recommend using the
EECS-Secure network if you are able to. If your network card doesn’t support WPA2-Enterprise encryption, or you experience problems in using
EECS-Secure, then you can use the
EECS-PSK network (bring your laptop to the Helpdesk to obtain the key).
