Wireless Access for ACM Devices

This page contains information on how to add devices owned and managed by the UIC ACM to our wireless network. The wireless network SSID and security settings used by ACM devices is not the same as the one used by UIC ACM members. If you are trying to add a device for a member, use the ACM wireless page instead.

Never use member credentials to authenticate an ACM device, wireless passwords are commonly stored insecurely on the device. ACM devices, outside of those located in the server room, should not be assumed to have a high level of physical security


  1. Following the instructions from the white-list page, add the device MAC address with the user set to “acm”
  2. Configure the device to connect to the hidden wireless network “ACMHidden”
  3. Configure the device security settings as “WPA2”, not Enterprise, and get the current shared password from an ACM admin
  4. The device should now be able to get an IP address from the network and have internet access

Admin Notes

  • We currently do not have documented support for giving ACM wireless devices static DHCP allocations.
  • Currently, the wireless network does not support dynamic DNS. If a hostname is needed for the device on the wireless network, a static IP must be setup first, then a DNS entry can be added to the DNS zone for the wireless network.
