Connecting to the wireless network

Our wireless network requires devices to have their hardware address (aka MAC address) registered on a white-list prior to being able to connect. The network will not allow connections from unregistered devices. Once your device is registered, you may use the following network key to connect to doe-student-368. Connections to doe-faculty-368 can be done by the Main Office.
