  3. Follow the instructions to login and enter your details


If clicking the "Register" button results in an error or fails for any reason, go back and write down the MAC address from the previous web page, then perform the following steps:

  1. From a device with an internet connection, navigate to https://helpdesk.maine.edu/device-registration and sign in using your Maine Street credentials
  2. Read the information at the top of the registration page before continuing, and be sure to follow any steps that apply to you
  3. Scroll down and enter your MAC address into the "MAC Address" text box. (How to find MAC address on most devices: http://bit.ly/1glWv11)
  4. Choose the appropriate type of device under the "Device Type" pull-down.
  5. Click "Register your device"


       4. Now, simply reboot the new device and you should now have unrestricted access to the "Tempest" wireless network!

If you have connected to the "MaineEDU-Guest" wireless network before, you should remove or "forget" the network, to ensure that your device only connects to the "Tempest" network.
