How to Log In into your Wireless network
Access to the SMC wireless network will require authorized users to authenticate with their SMC E-Mail username and password. Guests of the College and Conference and Event attendees must obtain a temporary guest account from the Service Desk through the sponsoring department or organization.
- Each time you initially turn on your laptop computer when in the SMC Wireless Zone and open up a browser, you will automatically be directed to the SMC ResNet/Wireless web login screen. Most major browsers are supported for the web authentication.
- You will be prompted to enter your SMC E-Mail username and password (i.e., if your E-Mail address is firstname.lastname@example.org, your username is helpdesk)
- Once the login is completed, the wireless session will remain active – even when you move between access points or buildings on campus.
- The session will expire if your laptop remains idle for an extended period or if it is turned off. To continue using the wireless network, you simply need to login again by reloading your browser the server automatically intercepts whatever homepage you have and presents the authentication page so you can log back on.
Remember, even after logging into the campus network, your wireless session is less secure than the standard "wired" method.
Non-College Users - Authorized guests (vendors, presenters, conference attendees etc.) who need to use the campus wireless network must obtain authorization (guest account) from the Service Desk. To avoid possible delays, it is recommended that the guest account be requested in advance of arrival on campus.
