MAC Authentication | OleMiss Network

Specialty devices that are unable to effectively use either Secure or Standard access may gain access to the 'OleMiss' network by manually registering its MAC address. Scientific instruments and certain gaming consoles are approved to use MAC authentication. To see the complete list of approved student devices, and for assistance locating the wireless MAC address, visit the 'specialty or gaming device' section of the Helpdesk website. WebID holders may register their approved device using the myDevices Portal button below.

Note: MAC authentication is geared for specialized devices only. As such it is not designed to support video or other data intensive applications. The OleMiss_v2 network is compatible with most devices and provides the fastest connection available making it more ideal for streaming. It also features enhanced security and eliminates the need to log in each time.
