If you would like to connect your personal device to Mid-Pacific Institute's wireless network, you must register it with the Technology department.

Current Mid-Pacific students are allowed ONE personal device that is NOT a wireless phone or iPad.

Incomplete submissions will be discarded.

A Wireless hardware address or MAC address is a number assigned to the hardware interface in your computer or wireless device. It is assigned by the manufacturer of that device. All manufacturers of Wireless interfaces cooperate to ensure that every hardware interface has a unique address.

If your computer has both an Ethernet interface and a Wireless interface, each will have its own unique hardware address.

An example of a wireless address looks like this:

00:1f:f6:49:cb:32

You'll need to find the Wireless address for the device you want to register in order to get access to Mid-Pacific Institute's wireless network.
