Purpose: The GCSC WIFI network will work with most personal wireless devices. This document demonstrates the use of Windows built-in wireless software. Your computer software may vary slightly in set-up. Your wireless device must support WPA encryption.
- Depending on your operating system and your software configuration, you may see a message that informs you that you are within range of a wireless access point (see Figure 1). Open your wireless access software to enter your wireless setup. On some devices you will need to go to settings and then to Wi-Fi setup.
- Ensure that the wireless access point you are choosing is a GCSC wireless access point. Locate and click the “gulfcoast” wireless network to connect. (Figure 2). If you cannot see the network you may need to refresh network list”.
