Connect to InternetNow WiFi Network

How To Connect:

  1. Open the WiFi setting on your wireless device (PC, Tablet, or Smart Phone)
  2. Select the “InternetNow5G” option, if that does not appear or if your device does not support 5G then select the “InternetNow2.4G” option and enter password Alaska2.4

Please note, with Apple devices, if you disconnect/delete on one device (and you have another iPad, Macbook, etc. device), your other devices may add the 2.4 SSID back in and continue to have a poor experience. You will need to update your settings from within your cloud account (not from the device).

How to Find a MAC Address

Connecting your gaming or streaming device to your InternetNow service is simple. You’ll need to enter your device MAC address into your InternetNow account settings. Finding your MAC address is unique to each device (Xbox, PlayStation, Roku, etc.). Please search for “how to find MAC address on (device)”. Your device manufacturer or technical blogs will provide you with the latest steps for finding this information.

How to Manage Random MAC or Private Address

iOS 14

Apple’s iOS 14 update includes a Private Address feature that changes the MAC address of your device for each network it connects to. When connecting to InternetNow with a WiFi Connection Type, users should disable this feature to avoid filling multiple device slots on their account. Since InternetNow uses your device’s MAC address to authenticate to our network, our customers will need to turn this feature off.

iPhone or iPad

  1. Open the “Settings” app and connect to our “InternetNow5G” network
  2. Tap the “I” info icon next to the network
  3. Toggle “Private Address” to off
  4. Return to Wi-Fi Setting and turn Wi-Fi off and back on again
  5. Verify MAC address shown under “InternetNow5G” SSID matches the MAC address in account

Apple Watch

  1. Open the “Settings” app and connect to our “InternetNow5G” network
  2. Select Wi-Fi
  3. Select our “InternetNow5G” network
  4. Toggle “Private Address” to off
  5. Verify MAC address shown under “InternetNow5G” SSID matches the MAC address in account

Windows 10

Some versions of Windows 10 have a feature that randomizes the MAC address for different Wi-Fi connections. When connecting to InternetNow, disable this feature to avoid filling multiple device slots on your account. If you do not see the option for “use random MAC address” it is likely that your version of Windows 10 does not have this feature.

  1. Select the “Start” button in the bottom left corner of the screen
  2. Select the gear icon to go to “Settings”
  3. Select “Network and Internet”
  4. Select “Wi-Fi”
  5. Set “Use random hardware addresses” to “Off”

Android 10

Phones running the Android 10 operating system (Android Q) include a feature that randomizes the MAC address for different Wi-Fi connections. This feature is enabled by default, but can be disabled for specific Wi-Fi networks. When connecting to InternetNow, users should disable this feature to avoid filling multiple device slots on their account.

Do I need equipment (i.e. router)?

It depends.

If you live in a Wall Jack building, we recommend connecting a router to the Ethernet port in the wall jack that has our logo on it. The router will give you WiFi capability. If you don’t have a router, you can connect your laptop or computer directly into the Ethernet port using an Ethernet cord.

If you live in an InternetNow WiFi-enabled building, then you do not need any additional equipment. Our WiFi buildings provide connectivity to compatible devices via the building’s WiFi connection.
