Connecting to Grizznet-Secure

General Information

  • User ID: Your email address (e.g. user@oakland.edu )

  • Password: Your ADMNET Active Directory (aka Windows) password

Helpful Hints

  • We recommend that you "forget" or remove the grizznet wireless network from your device(s) to prevent you from inadvertently connecting to that network.

  • If you get an error message stating something similar to "Invalid Credentials", then you most likely entered in the wrong password. You may need to reset your password to ensure that you are using the correct one.
  • If you are a student, then you very likely have never set your ADMNET password. In this case, you should go to https://netid.oakland.edu to change your NetID, Google and ADMNET passwords to the same password.

  • For further information on ADMNET passwords, please go to ADMNET Password Help

    • Faculty and Staff are required to change their ADMNET password every 6 months.
    • Students are not currently required to change their ADMNET password.
  • Depending upon your device, you may need to delete and re-add the GRIZZNET-SECURE wireless network whenever you change your password.

  • You have to "Trust", "Don't Validate" or "Accept" the *.oakland.edu certificate because the certificate is not installed on your device(s). This does not mean that the network is insecure.
