On newer mobile devices, there is a setting that randomizes the MAC address of the device before connecting to the network. This feature can cause problems on the campus Wi-Fi, as we register the device’s MAC address so it can connect. Here’s how you can turn this setting off:


For iOS devices:

  1. On your iPhone or iPad, open the Settings app

  2. Tap Wi-Fi

  3. Tap the blue “i” next to the CUNE or CUNESecure network (the one you want to connect to)

  4. See Private Address – Make sure this toggle is off.


On Android devices:

  1. Open Settings

  2. Tap Connections

  3. Select Wi-Fi and click the gear next to your current connection

  4. On MAC address type, select Phone MAC.


For students: Note that if you registered your device with a randomized MAC address, you will have to re-register it using the phone MAC address. 

If you have 8 devices registered already and need a device removed, submit a ticket with the New Ticket button above and let us know the MAC addresses you want deleted.
