Wireless Access - iOS and iPadOS

Overview

Southeast offers high-speed wireless connectivity to most residence halls, offices, and academic buildings on-campus. Users can connect their Apple iPad, iPhone, and iPod to Southeast's network via SoutheastResNet and SoutheastSecure.

Procedure

  1. Connect the device to either SoutheastResNet or SoutheastSecure using your SE Key and Password.
  2. A prompt will appear asking the user to "Trust" the network certificate; press Trust in the top-right.
  3. Once connected to the network, press the "i" button next to the name of the network to open the network settings.
  4. Disable "Private Address" and reconnect to the network.
  5. On the device, open a web browser and visit http://splat.semo.edu/
  6. Sign in with your SE Key and Password--just like signing into the Southeast Portal or a university computer.
  7. Scroll down to the bottom of the page and press "I accept". A message should appear that says "Registration Complete. Please reboot the machine."
  8. Restart the device. Once restarted, the device should be able to connect to the Internet via SoutheastSecure or SoutheastResNet from anywhere on-campus; to test this, try visiting a site like https://google.com/ or any other non-university site.

 

Additional Information

--Private Addresses are a way to anonymize network activity to protect the user of the device. While this is good from a security standpoint, it interferes with the way that Southeast's network operates and, as such, must be disabled for both SoutheastSecure and SoutheastResNet

--Users only have to visit http://splat.semo.edu/ once to register the device--if it is registered while on SoutheastSecure, the device will simultaneously be registered on SoutheastResNet. The only requirement is that Private Address must be disabled on both networks.
