MLC Student WLAN

Who Can Connect

The MLC Student WLAN is meant for use by currently-enrolled students at Martin Luther College with a currently-active MLC Account.

How To Connect

To successfully connect to the MLC Student WLAN, you will first need to connect and register on the MLC Guest WLAN. You will also want to wait a couple of minutes before attempting to connect to the MLC Student WLAN

After you have successfully registered your machine above, then do the following:

  • On your device, choose the MLC Student WLAN from the list of available wireless networks.
  • You should be prompted for some account credentials, use your MLC Account credentials to log into the network.
  • Wait to be connected!

That is, often, as simple as it needs to be. These instructions have been tested on Windows 7, Windows 10, Apple macOS El Capitan, and iOS 9. Future versions of those operating systems will also be verified.


I just changed my MLC Account password and cannot connect!

Some operating systems (Windows 10 has been known to have issues) will not prompt you to change the saved password when connecting after you have changed your password. You will need to remove that saved account and reconnect. Here are some simple instructions:

  1. click on the wireless network icon in the lower-right of the screen
  2. select Network settings
  3. choose Manage Wi-Fi settings
  4. scroll to the bottom of the page that pops up select MLC Student WLAN
  5. click Forget

Then follow the connection instructions above.

I am using a Chromebook, Chrome OS, Android, a Linux distribution, or some other operating system!

You are going to have to do more manual setup to get things working. Here are some settings you can look for!

  • EAP method: PEAP/Protected EAP
  • EAP Phase 2 authentication: Automatic or MSCHAPv2
  • Server CA certificate: Do not check/Do not validate/No CA certificate is required or leave as Default
  • Identity: your MLC Account username
  • Password: your MLC Account password
  • Anonymous Identity: leave blank

Then use your MLC Account username and password from there.

There are often other words used depending on the specific operating system you are using. Feel free to contact Network Services if you have questions. Also, some devices do not support WPA2 Enterprise authentication methods, so check with your manufacturer.

I just cannot seem to connect.

There are a number of reasons that this might happen, so often the best option is to contact MLC Network Services so that they can look into any account issues you might be having.

Also, make certain to register on the MLC Guest WLAN before attempting to connect to the MLC Student WLAN.
