Connecting as a Guest to MCC's wireless network (WiFi)

Mott Community College (MCC) operates a campus wide wireless network. Guest access is provided free of charge, but does require you to authenticate with either a valid email or facebook account. Please note that all these directions can be found by connecting to the Mott wireless network and following the onscreen directions.

Using an existing Facebook account to Authenticate: (easiest)

Using an existing Facebook account to authenticate is the easiest and quickest method to use the Mott wireless network as a guest.
