Law College Network

Connecting to the Law College Network

Wired Network

The Law College has an extensive wired computer network that is available for student use. Most classrooms and library study areas have access. Any orange network port, located in the wall, floor or desk, is the connection point. In order to make use of this service you must configure your computer to work with the College’s network and then register your computer. MSU has developed an instruction page to configure your computer. Once configured, you then have to register with the DHCP server at http://dhcp.msu.edu/.

If you require assistance, contact the MSU Law helpdesk at helpdesk@law.msu.edu or 517.432.9292.

Wireless Network

The Law wireless network covers the entire Law College Building . You will need a compatible wireless network card (see below) that is configured for our network.

To configure your wireless card:

  1. You should see the law network listed, just click on connect. If not, you may need to enter it manually. The SSID or Network ID for the Law College’s wireless network is “law”; enter it with out the quotation marks. If you are using Windows XP skip this step. All other versions of windows need to configure the network settings. Once the wireless cards software is installed follow the instructions here to configure the network settings.
  2. You should now be able to connect to the wireless network and register with the DHCP server at http://dhcp.msu.edu/. Use your MSU NetID username and password to register. This process must be done in the Law College Building and when you are NOT connected to the wired network.
  3. After restarting your computer you should be able to surf the wireless network.

If you require assistance, contact the MSU Law helpdesk at helpdesk@law.msu.edu or 517.432.9292.

Compatible Wireless Cards

Any 802.11b, 802.11g or 802.11n compatible network card should work,
the Technology Services Department has tested several different
manufacturers and models of cards to insure they work on our network.
