Wireless Network Registration
In order to maintain the reliability of the wireless network at the Fall 2007 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/.
- 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 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 Fall 2007 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.
