How to Connect

  1. Browse wireless for SSID name MSABROOKHAVEN.
  2. Connect to MSABROOKHAVEN using the WPA2 security password. This can be obtained from the Technology Department. It will allow you quick access to the network when leaving and returning to campus.
  3. After completing step two, launch your internet browser and go to a web site, such as www.msabrookhaven.org. If you are presented with an MSA login prompt, login using your MSANET login credentials. This will register your device to the network.

After logging in to captive portal, you will not be required to login again unless the device is removed from the registration database. A simple re-login with MSANET credentials at the login prompt will grant you access and re-register the device..
