What is OSU Access?
OSU_Access is the unsecured campus wireless network. Anybody with an ONID account can connect.
How do I connect?
You can connect to OSU Access using your laptop's wireless connection. If it is set to automatically connect, it may ask you if you really want to connect to it. You may also have to select it from the list of wireless networks, and it may ask you if you really want to connect here as well. In either case select Ok, or Connect.
If the device has been permanently registered previously, launching a web browser will simply take you to your home page at this point.
If you have not permanently registered the device before, when you launch your browser you should get a sign-in/registration page. You can choose to either sign in, which is just a temporary 16 hour login, or you can register your computer's MAC address? so that you don't have to sign in again. We strongly recommend that customers permanently register their machines.

OSU Secure Recommendation!
It is highly recommended that users, when possible, always use OSU Secure. Connections over this wireless network are encrypted and secure. OSU Secure provides the same resources and availablity as OSU Access. It only requires a single setup, but once done will allow users to connect automatically like OSU Access.
