Why am I being asked to register my computer?

OSU Access Wireless portal has returned

The login page for the OSU Access wireless network has returned. Information about that can be found here.

OSU Access is an unsecured/unencrypted wireless network. OSU IT staff recommend you use the Eduroam or OSU Secure wireless networks.

OSU uses a registration system for ONID users that allows you to register your wireless device. The system then recognizes the device using the MAC or Hardware Address, which is a ten-digit hexadecimal number assigned to all wireless devices, the next time the device tries to connect.
