MIT offers short-term network service to campus guests. To get
their personal machine connected to the MIT network, campus visitors
need to have a wireless network card or a wired Ethernet card and an
For wired machines, visitors need to plug the Ethernet cable into
their computer and an MITnet network drop. This drop will likely
have a green MITnet sticker. For wireless machines, visitors need to
make sure the wireless card is on and enabled. In both cases, the
machine needs to be configured for DHCP (obtaining an IP address
automatically). If the machine is running firewall software, it will
need to be disabled until the registration process is complete.
Once their equipment is ready, visitors should open a web browser
and point it to any web page, select Visitor registration, and
respond to the prompts about contact information, number of days of
connectivity, and the event for which they are on campus. Visitors
can register between 1 and 5 (consecutive) days at a time, up to 14
days per year.
