Wifi information for 2019-2020
All GCCS owned laptops and Chromebooks, as well as staff and student owned devices, will now connect to the WiFi network called, ‘GCCS’. This network requires the use of GCCS credentials. Devices that are not capapble of WPA/WPA2 Enterprise, such as some smart devices, will not be able to join the network.
For iPhones, you will need to enter your credentials. Then you may be prompted with a certificate popup that requires you to click on Trust, as in the image below:
For most android devices, you will be prompted for more information as to the type of network. There are many different types of androids, so below is the information that you need to connect:
- EAP Method: PEAP
- Phase 2 authentication: None
- CA Certificate: You may see variations of “Do not validate” or “None”
- Identity: Your username
- Anonymous identity: leave blank
- Password: Your password
Here is an example from a Google Pixel 2:
*Please note that when you change your GCCS password that you need to update your WiFi settings on your personal devices. Failure to do this may cause your account to be automatically locked out due to bad passwords.
The ‘GCCS Guest’ network is sponsor based, and is intended for visitors such as student teachers, vendors, or presenters. This network requires the guest to enter their name and email address, as well as the email address of the staff member that will be giving them access. The staff member will receive an email showing the request for access, as well as a link that will authorize the guest. The access will be valid for 24 hours.
Please note that this network is not for students to use.
