Connecting/Registering a Mobile Device for the First Time

When connecting for the first time, all devices should connect via PACE-OPEN, which will automatically configure the network and guest login settings on your device and register it on the network.  A device must be registered in order to get network access, but only needs to be registered once. Once registered, your device will be connected to PACE-WIRELESS.  Connection via PACE-OPEN is a one-time process and subsequent connections can be made directly via PACE-WIRELESS.

  For detailed steps to register your device and to connect to PACE-WIRELESS, visit our PACE-WIRELESS FAQs page.

Reconnecting with a Mobile Device that was Previously Registered

Devices that were previously registed via PACE-OPEN can then connect directly to PACE-WIRELESS by entering their MyPace Username and Password when prompted.  IMPORTANT: The connecting device must support WPA2 enterprise encryption.

Changes to Guest Account access when using PACE-WIRELESS

For PACE-WIRELESS users, a new process for setting up guest accounts has been implemented to provide Internet-only access to Pace guests. More details can be found on the PACE-WIRELESS FAQs page. Users with Internet-only guest accounts must connect to PACE-OPEN.

For more advanced access (e.g.: Pace temp/contractor accounts), please refer to for more details. Users with advanced access guest accounts must connect to PACE-WIRELESS.
