Wi-Fi Sign In
This entry should be read by both PERC Staff and Tech Squad volunteers.
I am excited to tell you that the Wi-Fi Guest Network sign-in process has been simplified! No longer are users being routed to the long yellow sheet where they are asked for a name and an email address; instead, they are redirected to a much shorter "Disclaimer" where they only need to click on (or Tap for iPads) ACCEPT to be logged in to the wireless network.
Also, I have created an insert to be given to patrons borrowing our iPads. This "tip" sheet will instruct the patron how to re-set the Wi-Fi if the connection is lost. When you are logging patrons onto the wireless, please share the information on this insert with them.
I have noticed that patrons often return to the PERC with the device when the device "times out" of Wi-Fi. This explains how to get to the Settings icon and from there how to make the connection to the appropriate wireless network (MGuest-UMHS).
I will make the appropriate changes to the laptop "tip" sheet. If you have any questions on this change, please let me know. Thanks again for all your help.
