The URI network currently does not have support for IPv6 connections. If you are having difficulty connecting to the URI network, please be sure that both your wireless and wired network settings for IPv6 are set to "Off". Below are the how-to instructions to fix this problem.

1. On your Mac, click on the Apple menubar item in the upper left hand of your screen, and select System Preferences.
2. Within System Preferences, select Networking.
3. Click on the networking device you would like to modify and click Advanced.
4. Under the TCP/IP tab, ensure that the option for Configure IPv6 is set to Off.

Now that IPv6 is disabled, you should be able to connect to the internet.
