McMaster wireless networks

Check out the cards below to learn more about the three main McMaster networks on campus and when to use them. Mac-WiFi is the primary network to use on campus.

Information Box Group

Mac-Wifi To learn how to connect

The Mac-WiFi system uses the Wi-Fi Protected Access method to encrypt your data. This network is available for members of the McMaster community across campus through your credentials.

Reznet-WiFi To learn how to connect

Students can access Wi-Fi in their residence building through “Reznet-WiFi”. You can access this network with your McMaster credentials.

The process to connect to this network is the same as it is to connect to Mac-WiFi.
