iPod Touch WiFi Access at UCO

How can we access UCO wireless internet on our ipod touch?

To use any kind of Apple computer hardware (a laptop, iPhone, or iPod Touch) on the UCO wireless network you have to register the device's "MAC address" (a long number assigned to the wireless card of the device) with university computing services.

The easiest way to do this is take your iPod Touch to the University's Help Desk located in the Student Union. (The Nigh Center) Staff there can get your iPod Touch's MAC address and enter it into their system, along with your Banner ID.

You can alternatively visit the University's Technology Support site and fill out an online request form. You will need to look up your iPod Touch's MAC address and send that information to them.

After your device's MAC address is registered on the University's network, you should be able to turn on WiFi and select the network "UCO." You should not need to login with your Banner ID and password, you should just immediately have WiFi access available.
