  • If a browser window opens with the UNH-Open captive portal screen:
    • use a different device to visit networking.unh.edu
    • click NAC Registration and log in to see all devices registered to you
  • Click the Settings cogs next to the MAC address you noted above
  • In the Device Information section, if you do not see the following, please contact the Service Desk to request they manually fingerprint your device:
