Information Technology Services has created an additional wireless network.
The Student Wireless connection was created primarily to solve Mac connectivity issues in the dorms and elsewhere on campus, but it can be used by anyone with Rhodes network login credentials.
It works like the public connections in coffee houses, doctor’s offices, hotels, etc.
After the connection is selected from the available networks list on your computer, entering an the eight-digit network key, 12345678, will connect you to STUDENT WIRELESS. This key can be saved, so you don't have to enter it every time.
When a browser is opened, a login page will appear for you to enter your Rhodes network credentials.
STUDENT WIRELESS will allow the same access as Rhodes Wireless, and if your device has wifi and a web browser, then you can log into Student Wireless.
Here's how to connect:
On Mac OS (screenshots are below), locate the Airport icon indicating that networks are available. PC users should right-click the network icon in the task bar.
Select Student Wireless from the available networks list.
Enter the eight-digit network password - 12345678. This will be saved on your device.
At this point, you're connected - but not yet logged in to the network.
Open a browser, and the Rhodes network login page will appear.
Enter your Rhodes username and password, and click Sign in.
The Welcome screen indicates a successful sign in.
