  • To connect, first open the Settings app and select “Wi-Fi” or “Wi-Fi Settings.” Select the “MCAD” network from the list of networks.



  • In the window that opens, make sure all the settings match those pictured below. “EAP method” must be “PEAP,” “Phase 2 authentication” must be “GTC,” and “CA certificate” must be “Do not validate.”


  • Then enter your MCAD Login credentials: “Identity” is your MCAD username (first initial last name), the “Anonymous identity field” must be left blank, and make sure to scroll down to enter your MCAD password.



  • When you are sure all these settings are correct, click “Connect.”


    If everythign is configured correctly the phone will proceed to connect to the MCAD network and obtain an IP address in a few moments. If you have any issues with this process or questions, please contact MCAD Help Desk at


    Some Android phones require that you enter a "Domain" in order to connect to the MCAD network. If this is an issue impacting you, enter "" (without the quotes) into that field. This should allow you to connect. Everyone else that is not REQUIRED to enter this by their phone should ignore this setting.


    PLEASE NOTE: Phones with Android OS 13 (such as the Google Pixel line) currently cannot connect to the MCAD network due to changes in Android Wi-Fi networking. We currently do not have a workaround for this issue.
