Guide to the Wireless Network
Before You Try to Connect
Important: Before you try to connect to the wireless network, you must first log in to the OCC network using a Windows PC on campus (e.g., using a PC in the Academic Computing Center or an Internet Cafe). Please note that logging in to WebAccess to register for classes is not enough. You must first log into the network on a campus PC in order to connect to the wireless network.
How to Connect
It is impossible to provide a single set of instructions to connect a laptop to the OCCWireless Network, and we cannot guarantee access. The Helpdesk is unable to provide connection assistance due to the variability among PCs and high call volumes.
Instructions are provided below. You can generally obtain additional assistance at the beginning of the fall and spring terms, by attending a wireless clinic and/or asking for help in the Academic Computing Center.
