Connecting to the Wireless Network in ITB

To connect to the Wireless network in ITB, first you need to complete an application form - which is available here or at the Student information desk.  Fill it in providing your name, your student number and what operating system you use (Windows 7? Vista? Mac Os...) 

We also need your MAC address (this has nothing to do with the brand of device you are using.)

Press Enter.  
We are looking for a 12 digit physical address that relates to your wireless network card. Look for it in the list of items that appears after you press enter.
