How do I connect to UM Wi-Fi? On my phone, I see OleMiss, OleMiss_v2 and EDUROAM.
For faculty, staff and students on our campuses, we recommend OleMiss_v2. It is our advanced wireless access solution that was released in summer 2013. You can read more about v2 and the initial setup at wireless.olemiss.edu.
