Blackberry MRsecure setup

MRU offers a secure wireless network that can be accessed by the Blackberry devices with WiFi support. For best results, it is recommended to only use these devices on the secure network MRsecure and not on the non-secure network MRwave. Please follow the procedure listed below to enable WPA2 for your device.  If you have any problems please call 403.440.6000.

Blackberries are designed to use WiFi networks as highest priority if the connection is available.

Requirements

  • A Blackberry device that supports WiFi and 802.11 with WPA and PEAP standards
  • Important: Get updated drivers from your manufacturer or cellular provider.

Note: The following instructions are based upon Rogers Wireless Blackberry 9000 Bold devices. Not all Blackberry devices support WiFi and those that do may have different setup steps and instructions. Please consult the documentation that came with your device as well as the manufacturer’s website. Additionally, you may need to upgrade your Blackberry with the latest drivers and software versions.

MRU IT does not provide support for Blackberry WiFi setup. This document is provided as general reference only.
