Mac OS X Wireless Configuration

Make sure you have all the latest updates and drivers installed on your machine.

Click the WiFi Connection icon and select Trailblazers.

A prompt box will pop up, asking for your Dixie username & password.


If you need to troubleshoot, click “Open Network Preferences” on the drop-down list.

Make sure ‘Wi-Fi’ is connected.


If it isn’t automatically configured, the settings should be set to:

  • Network: Trailblazers
  • 802.1x: Default
  • Security: WPA/WPA2 Enterprise


You might be asked to verify the wireless certificate. Click the continue button. Depending on your computer preferences, you may need to enter your computer username and password. This will be different from your Dmail username and password.

If you are still having trouble connecting, visit the Student Help Desk on the 2nd floor of the Holland Centennial Commons or the Smith Computer Center, or e-mail
