Wireless: Guest WIFI access

Connecting to CMICH-GUEST

The CMICH-GUEST network is for people visiting campus. If you are a current student, faculty, or staff member, you should connect to the CMICH network. The CMICH-GUEST network has a few limitations that do not apply to the other networks:

  • Lower security to increase compatibility
  • 10Mb / sec speed cap to limit bandwidth impact to primary networks

 

NOTE: This is 10 megabits per second. This equates to a roughly 1.125 megabytes per second download speed maximum.

  1. Connect to CMICH-GUEST in the device's network settings
