Laptops

You are encouraged to bring a laptop with you to MSU. Please be aware that laptop computers have been stolen from offices in our building, so use security precautions.

Connecting to the Network

The campus wired network provides connections using DHCP, however, unregistered computers will not be able to contact off-campus computers. Must of the BPS building's public areas are covered by the MSUnet Wireless network (http://www.wireless.msu.edu/). Many other areas are covered by ad-hoc access points.

Connecting to MSUnet Wireless Guest

This is the simplest connection method for use in the Atrium and adjacent classrooms. (You may also find the network in thrid floor offices, but the signal is weak and performance is likely unacceptable.)

To connect to MSUnet Wireless Guest network:

  • Select wireless network SSID "MSUnet Wireless Guest"
  • Try to load a webpage, for example http://www.msu.edu/
    • You will be redirected to the login page
    • Accept the Terms of Use and press submit on webpage
  • You can now reach off campus computers
