The "MUSDWireless" wireless network is available for all staff to use with their district wireless devices. This wireless network is connected to our internal servers allowing users to connect to network services that are not available on the "MUSDGuest" wireless network (for Macs, this means access to our network printers).
While your connection to this network is setup by our technicians before you get your Mac, there are occasions when you will need to edit this connection. Typically this happens when you change your network password (every 180 days). This article will walk you through the process to reconnect to this network.
Locate the wireless symbol on the top right corner of the screen and click on it.
Select "Join Other Network".
The "Find and join a Wi-Fi network" window will pop up.
In the "Network Name:" field, enter MUSDWireless.
In the "Security:" field, select "WPA2 Enterprise" from the drop down list.
In the "Username:" field, enter your network username (this is the first part of your email address before the "@" symbol). For example, if your email address is email@example.com, your network username is flast (this is typically your first initial followed by your last name).
In the "Password:" field, enter your network password (note that this password is not necessarily the same as your email password). This is the password that you are required to change every 180 days. Most Mac users change this password using our online password change system at pwhelper.musd.org.
Click on the "Join" button.
A "Verify Certificate" window may pop up.
Click on the "Continue" button to accept this Certificate (the exact wordage may be different than the picture here).
A Certificate Trust Settings window may pop up.
This login is for the Mac's administrative login which is set by Technology Services department when the Mac is originally setup. The username is your full name (first and last names) and the password is musd (all lowercase). Click on the "Update Settings" button.
The MUSDWireless wireless network should now connect. Verify by opening the wireless list (click on the wireless symbol on the top right corner of the screen).
You should now see the MUSDWireless network listed with a check mark next to it indicating you are connected.
As always, please contact Technology Services if you need additional assistance.
