In addition to ethernet, MICA has a secure wireless network that covers the entire campus. This technology allows students, staff and faculty to access the web without the limitations of a wired connection. Users can connect with a laptop or a mobile device that has a standard wireless adapter. The wireless coverage is very thorough within the campus buildings and even on remote sites.
MICA's wireless networks:
MICA has four distinct wireless networks; each network serves a valuable purpose:
MICA Open wireless: this network is designed for on-campus usage by MICA students, faculty, and staff; this network is accessible with a password; users can contact the Help Desk at (410) 225 - 2201 / Help@MICA.edu for assistance in getting logged into this network. Because this network doesn't require the user to enter the network password every time the network is accessed, this is the recommended wireless network for students on campus.
MICA Residential wireless: this wireless network is similar to the MICA Open wireless, but was set up for people who stay in MICA residence halls. This is the recommended wireless network for MICA students who are staying in school housing. Users can contact the Help Desk at (410) 225 - 2201 / Help@MICA.edu for assistance in getting logged into this network.
MICA wireless: this network is only accessible to members of the MICA community. Log in is achieved by providing an active MICA username and password.
MICA Guest wireless: this network was created for parents, visitors, visiting artists, and is accessible to any user on campus.
The recommended networks for usage are the Residential and Open networks. These networks only require you to enter the password for login the first time a user is accessing the network.
If you need password assistance with any of these wireless networks, please contact the Help Desk.
Please contact the MICA Help Desk (firstname.lastname@example.org / (410) 225 - 2201) if you have any trouble accessing the networks on campus. When reporting a network issue, be prepared to report your location, the nature of the problem, and the Help Desk will arrange to have our network administrators investigate the issue.
