A new webpage helps campus users register and connect many types of devices to the U-M wireless network

Starting today, December 21, look for a new wireless network name to be broadcast on the UM-Ann Arbor campus.

ITS Infrastructure has launched a new network called MSetup to allow many more wireless devices to connect to the U-M network than ever before—including smart speakers, wearables, and game consoles. See the ITS Device Compatibility Guide for more detail.

How does MSetup work?

A new MSetup webpage—is the starting point to connect all devices to U-M WiFi networks. Traditional devices like laptops and smartphones will be configured for MWireless and Eduroam, while other devices will connect to the MSetup network. Connecting to the “MSetup” network from a laptop or smartphone will display a popup window with the same webpage.

A resource on the ITS Documentation website, MSetup Device Registration, contains more detail about how MSetup works.

Note: MiWorkspace customers should not run the WiFi Setup Tool that can be accessed from MSetup on their university-managed laptops.
