Wireless Network Registration
In order to improve the reliability of the wireless network
at the Spring 2006 Internet2 Member Meeting you must complete
this registration process using the computer that you
plan to use on the wireless network. You can register
more than one computer, but must register each one individually.
A computer needs to be registered only once; the registration
is effective throughout the Meeting and any number of different
people can use the computer once it has been registered. In
addition to collecting your name and email address, the registration
process will record the wireless Ethernet MAC address of the
computer. You will be asked for your mobile phone or pager
number. This information is not required to register, but will
allow support staff to quickly contact you in case of problems.
Configuring Your Wireless Device
The SSID for the wireless network is Internet2
Please configure your device appropriately and verify that
you are associated with a wireless access point by checking
the indicator light on your laptop. Once completed, you can
proceed to the registration process.
- To begin registration, open a browser and enter https://wlan-reg.internet2.edu/.
If you do not have browser capability, visit the Help Desk
- Enter the required and optional information and press Submit
- After submitting your registration information you must wait
approximately one (1) minute to allow registrant
information to be refreshed in the DHCP access lists.
- Your system may automatically determine its new IP address
and allow you to access the network. If you don't have access
after one minute, manually renew your
DHCP lease or reboot your computer.
The Help Desk is located in the Arlington Ballroom Lobby of
the hotel. Help Desk hours are:
Monday, April 24: 8:00am-5:00pm
Tuesday, April 25: 8:00am-5:00pm
Wednesday, April 26: 8:00am-5:00pm
The information you provide will be used by network engineers
to resolve any wireless network problems if they should occur.
The information will not be shared with any other party, and
will be destroyed at the conclusion of the Spring 2006 Internet2
Member Meeting. In the event a computer causes a problem for
the wireless network, such as acting as a rogue access point,
our network engineers will be able to associate the MAC address
of the problem machine with an individual, using the registration
database. We can use this information quickly to find the person
who registered the device and solve the problem quickly, keeping
all wireless users happy.
