Accessing the network through a wireless connection at UMHS can be a confusing process, sometimes requiring switching between wireless networks (SSIDs) since not every SSID is available at every location. On October 1, in an effort to simplify establishing and maintaining a wireless connection, a new service, MWireless-UMHS, became available as a replacement for many of the SSIDs that use Level-1 (UMICH) passwords for authentication, including UMHS-Open and UMHS-Level1. SSIDs that do not use Level-1, such as UMHS-8021X and MGuest-UMHS, were unaffected and continue to be available.
If you are having difficulty accessing MWireless-UMHS with your Level-1, we recommend changing your Level-1 password. Some changes were made to the network within the last several months, so if you have a Level-1 password older than 12 months, it will need to be changed to sync with the MWireless network.
MWireless-UMHS uses Active Directory (UMROOT) passwords for authentication. Active Directory passwords will usually be the same as Level-1 UMICH Password passwords, though they may be different on occasion. If you don't know your Active Directory password, you should change your Level-1 password so it can be synchronized to Active Directory; instructions for setting a password are available on the Active Directory page.
MWireless-UMHS is visible in all Michigan Medicine buildings, including the Taubman Health Sciences Library and North Campus Research Complex (NCRC). After selecting MWireless-UMHS for the wireless network, it is not necessary to re-authenticate when moving between Michigan Medicine buildings, including the NCRC.
|Versions of the MWireless network are available throughout the greater university campus. In order to make the network manageable, the MWireless network is subdivided by location; each SSID is named "MWireless" followed by a campus location. While each location-specific SSID is part of the larger MWireless network, it will be necessary to re-authenticate when moving between these locations since the name of the SSID will change.|
