One of the first things to do with an iOS device at Middlebury is to get it connected to our Wi-Fi networks. This enables the device to connect to the Internet, as well as on-campus-only resources. LIS strongly advises community members to use only the secured Wi-Fi networks, midd-secure and Midd-standard. Setup is simple, but you must be on-campus to do it!

midd-secure

midd-secure is the fastest and most secure Wi-Fi network on-campus. LIS recommends midd-secure as the first choice for Wi-Fi connectivity.

  1. From the Home screen of your iOS device, select Settings.
  2. From the Settings screen, select Wi-Fi.
  3. Make sure that Wi-Fi is ON, then select midd-secure from the Choose a Network... list.
  4. At the prompts, enter your Middlebury credentials: username and password and then select Join.
  5. If all went well, your iOS device is now connected to midd-secure!

Midd-standard

Midd-standard is another option for fast and secure Wi-Fi access on-campus. Midd-standard is not as fast (nor as secure) as midd-secure, however all that is needed to connect to Midd-standard is a shared key, readily available through the LIS Helpdesk at x2200.

  1. From the Home screen of your iOS device, select Settings.
  2. From the Settings screen, select Wi-Fi.
  3. Make sure that Wi-Fi is ON, then select Midd-standard from the Choose a Network... list.
  4. At the Password prompt, enter the shared key that you were given by the LIS Helpdesk and then select Join.
  5. If all went well, your iOS device is now connected to Midd-standard!

midd_unplugged

midd_unplugged is an unsecured Wi-Fi network for guests. Don't use it. (see notes below)

LIS Admin Notes

  • LIS promotes the secure and responsible use of the services that we provide to the Middlebury community. Using an unsecured Wi-Fi connection puts you at risk of having your unencrypted data intercepted while in transit. Play it safe, stay on midd-secure or Midd-standard.
