Connecting to our network

Maine Maritime Academy provides wireless connectivity throughout our campus as well as wired connectivity in our residence hall, classrooms and graduate housing. Devices will need to support WPA2-Personal encryption over wireless. All devices will need to be registered with our Bradford network appliance.

Laptops, PC’s and Smart Phones

You will be required to register your laptop, PC or smartphone once on campus. To register, please connect to our wireless network ‘MMA-Secure’ and enter ‘mmasecure’ for a password. At this point, open up a web browser and attempt to browse to a web page. You will be directed to register your device. Those instructions will be provided on that page.  If you are using a hardware connection, attempt to browse the web and you will be provided the same page.

Please note: Laptops or PC’s running Windows will need all important and critical updates as well as Antivirus software installed and up to date. We recommend using Windows Defender or Security Essentials for laptops running Windows 7.

Windows XP or Windows Vista is no longer supported.

Printers, Media Devices and Gaming Consoles

These devices will need to be registered once the device is connected to our network. The registration page and instructions may be found here (http://bradford.mma.edu/registration/GameRegister.jsp) . Be prepared to provide the devices MAC address when registering. This is a unique 12 character code tied to your devices network interface. This number is usually provided in its documentation or through navigating your devices network settings.
