Mercer IT maintains a wireless networking system, by which the Mercer students can access the Internet.
In this section:
To connect to our wired network simply plug an Ethernet cable into your computer/game console/printers/DVD player/etc. and the wall jack with a blue tab (not white). Cables may be purchased at the bookstore or at the Auxililary Services office on the Macon campus; you will also find them at most major retailers.
NOTE: Game consoles, printers, and other multimedia devices are not permitted on the wireless network due to the bandwidth needed. You must use a wired Ethernet connection.
To connect to our wireless network, simply select the MU-Student wireless connection from the list of available networks. Once connected, open an internet browser. You will be prompted to enter your Mercer University ID (MUID) and password. Your password is the same password used to log in
to your MyMercer account. If you have never logged into your MyMercer account, click here for instructions.
NOTE: You will use the same login and password to access MyMercer, the wireless network, and the library computers. So, if you change your password for any of these systems, it will automatically be changed for all of them.
Guests (which includes parents, visitors, etc.) may access the MU-Guest wireless network in select areas on campus. Simply select the MU-Guest wireless connection from the list of available networks. Once connected, open an internet browser. Guests will be prompted to enter a valid email address.
NOTE: The MU-Guest network is not available in the dorms, apartments, or lofts.
