Summary

The MGuest-UMHS wireless network is a free wireless Internet service providing internet access to UMHS patients and families as well as other non-UM visitors. It is available in most Hospitals & Health Centers facilities. The network allows individuals to access the internet and publicly available UMHS resources from a computer or other device with a wireless Ethernet card. Students, faculty, and staff are encouraged to use MWireless-UMHS as their primary network, as it is secure and encrypted. Access to certain university resources, including academic journals, is limited. Guests must agree to the university's terms of service in order to connect. Devices that cannot display a captive portal are not able to connect.


Restrictions

MGuest-UMHS is set up with a filter which blocks internet content deemed "inappropriate." Certain types of applications or traffic are blocked by the firewall.


Detailed Information

  • Has a firewall limitation of approximately 300 Mbps, and each session is throttled to 5-8 Mbps.
  • Is restricted to 2.4 GHz in the clinical areas to avoid competition with clinical wireless
  • Allows the most common VPN protocols for users who need to connect to outside resources, specifically SSL, PPTP, and IPSEC (AH, ESP, ISAKMP, NAT-T)
  • Each guest connection is session authenticated. This means that if the session drops and restarts, the policy page appears again. This can happen when a device goes into sleep mode, does not send data for 5 minutes or reconnects during motion to a different guest controller.
