Stevens offers support for connecting many mobile devices to our network, however, many mobile devices do not support the 802.1x authentication. If your mobile device does not have the ability to 802.1x authenticate then you need to register the MAC address of the device. If your device does not have Wifi access then it is not capable of using the Stevens Network.

If you already know your device's MAC address then please follow these instructions on how to Register A MAC Address.
