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.

How to Add a Device

Now that you are signed up for InternetNow, adding additional devices to your InternetNow service is simple and may be done in one of two ways: (1) in My Account (2) via our Splash page.

  1. Log into My Account
  2. In My Account HOME, select the Manage Devices tab
  3. Add in the MAC address you wish to connect
  4. Add a Device Name to differentiate from others and click Save

Add a Device Through the Splash Page

  1. Open a web browser from the device you would like to add. Our splash page will open after connecting to our network. If the page doesn't load immediately, navigate to a non-https site such as www.gointernetnow.com
  2. Once the splash page opens, find the Add Device section and select Log into My Account
  3. When you log into My Account with your device, it will automatically open the Manage Devices tab and autofill your devices MAC address
  4. Simply name your device and click Save
  5. Note - if you have multiple accounts, when you log into My Account you will see a message at the top of the page that reads “Important changes detected, please review them.” Click the drop-down menu and select the account you wish to add your device to, and follow steps 3 and 4 above.

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.
