MCEmployee wireless connection info

posted Sep 18, 2012, 12:31 PM by Rand Hall   [ updated Sep 25, 2012, 5:30 AM ]
Part of the campus-wide wireless upgrade is a new employee-only network, MCEmployee. This network is designed to provide secure authenticated access to systems containing sensitive college information. The old Pfrancing network will be turned off at the end of September. Switching to the new network is easy and can be done at any time.

College-owned Windows computers: Simply select the MCEmployee network from the popup list of wireless networks. (Be patient. It may take a few moments to configure itself.)
Personal Windows computers: Please visit the Help Desk for assistance

Are you already configured to connect to MCEmployee?

If you have ever connected to Pfrancing (or the even slower MCGuest) with your computer it will keep trying until you tell it to stop!



Windows: Click Pfrancing in the list of available networks and uncheck “Connect automatically”
Macintosh: Under System Preferences > Network > Airport, click the 'Advanced' button and delete Pfrancing from the Preferred Networks list
If you encounter any difficulty please visit or call the Help Desk (x3500).
