Employees and students with network accounts can use this to access the Internet* using Wi-Fi capable personal devices (tablets, phones, laptops). Log in using your network account however; it is not a secure network. You will only have access to the Internet*. This is not a permanent connection. You will have to login to use it. You will login using your web browser. This is the fastest option for employees and students using your own devices.
Open access to the Internet* for RVC guests for short-term access. It is an unsecure, limited-bandwidth connection and may slow down at times.
If you are an employee and have an Apple iOS device, we have several enabled locations which allow you to 'mirror' your device output to the workstation and onto the projector, using RVC's wi-fi. These instructions are subject to change as we roll out more areas which are enabled for mirroring. Employees will not have access to local RVC file and print services when using this network.
Test Video FilesThese video files are local at RVC and will help you test if your wi-fi connection is working or not. If these local RVC videos play for you, but other Internet-based videos do not, then the problem is due to delays related to Internet services or remote website congestion.
These maps indicate where wireless access points are positioned but may not necessarily indicate signal strength in certain areas. These maps are subject to change due to adjustments and improvements in our wireless network. Efforts will be made to update these maps as substantial changes are made by adding or moving wireless access points.
