This is leaflet page of the wireless LAN connection method.
Note: For those who need it for leaflet, please use the above page by printing.

1. How to Use
Connection method
  1. Enable wireless connection.
    Please enable Wi-Fi connection on the network connection setting or etc.
  2. Detect Wireless Access Point.
    The wireless LAN access point has one of the following SSIDs.
    When you are in a place where radio waves can reach you will automatically find one or more of the following.
    SSID
    IEEE 802.11
    Encryption method
    mieu-mobile-a
    11 a/n/ac
    WPA2-PSK-AES
    mieu-mobile-g
    11 b/g/n
    WPA2-PSK-AES
    Because there is a difference in the wireless LAN standard, "mieu-mobile-a" can connect more stably.
    Please connect to "mieu-mobile-a" at first. If connection is unstable please connect to "mieu-mobile-g".

  3. Connect to wireless access point.
    Please select "mieu-mobile-a" or "mieu-mobile-g" and enter the network security key (password).

    Network security key (password) is this link
    (internal access only. To access from outside the university, please use a unified account.)


  4. When entering the network security key, the following screen may be displayed.
    If it is displayed, please select "いいえ".


  5. If you can connect without problems, proceed to the next authentication method.

Note:For details on how to connect each operating system, see the next page.

Authentication method
  1. Account (user ID and password) uses unified account.
    About unified account, please follow the above link.

  2. Launch the web browser and access something starting from "http://".
    ex.http://www.mie-u.ac.jp
    The next authentication page will be displayed automatically.
    Note: For websites that begin with "https://", the authentication page is not displayed.
    Note: Please do not bookmark the authentication screen. It is impossible to connect at the next authentication time.




  3. Enter the user ID and password of the unified account, select the connection time, and click the "接続(Connect)" button.
    After successful authentication, you will move on to the next authentication page.
    Please do not close this authentication window.
    To finish the connection, click the "切断(Disconnect)" link in the center of the authentication window.


  4. If you select "Do not specify" for "connection time" and connect, you will be taken to the next authentication page.
    To finish the connection, close the authentication window.



  5. The time displayed to the right of the user ID at the top of the authentication window indicates the time when the connection confirmation was received from the authentication server.
    If this time is delayed by 5 minutes or more, or it switches to the screen like the one below, it may be disconnected for some reason.
    Please close the web browser and re-authenticate.
    If disconnection occurs frequently, specify the connection time and perform authentication.

Note

There is no problem in the case of your PC, but on a shared computer, if you forget to disconnect, there is a danger of being used illegally.
In this case, the person who used it illegally is obvious, but also the negligence of the person who disconnect is also accused.
Depending on the specification and setting of the Web browser, if you can not use Javascript when communicating with the authentication server, the following authentication screen is displayed.
If possible, check the web browser setting.

2. MAC address registration type connection service (faculty staff only)

We started MAC address registration type connection service on March 25, 2017.
When you register the MAC address of the terminal you are using, you can use the wireless LAN connection for about 3 months without having to input the unified account password.

Click here for registration management page

On the registration management page, you can check the registered terminal, update the validity period, pause, delete and etc.
To register a terminal that is currently connected, please click the "接続端末を登録する" button at the successful authenticated screen.
To manually register the MAC address, please register from the above registration management page.

3. Network for guest

However, access to internal page, can not be done.
Application form for guest's network connection
