Connecting to the Internet

Adapted from Connecting to the Wireless Network:

To use the network, register the MAC address of your device with the HackNC organizers before or during the event.


UNC-PSK is available if for whatever reason you cannot use UNC-SECURE, it uses a shared secret key instead of a certificate. Ask an organizer for the password if you are unable to connect to UNC-SECURE.


This is the public "guest" network, requiring no password. Access on this network is limited to web and a few other protocols, and to the internet outside the domain.


This is the simplest, and fastest, option for anyone who doesn't want to worry about passwords. Note that you must still register your MAC address.


UNC-Secure is the primary wireless network for UNC students, configuration instructions are provided by ITS.
