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 through "MOTTGuest" wifi, 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 is the easiest and quickest method to use the Mott wireless network as a guest.

Step 1:
On your wireless device connect to the wireless network named "MottGuest" (*not* Mott1X) Most modern operating systems will at this point bring up the "login page", if your device doesn’t please open a web browser on your device and attempt to go to any website, you will be redirected to the captive portal page.

Step 2:
Scroll down toward the bottom of the page and click on the link called "Login with Facebook account"
