Norwalk Community College is proud to offer Wi-Fi internet access throughout the college for all NCC students. Both East and West campuses have been outfitted with wireless access points allowing students to be online no matter where they are in either building. There is also some limited coverage in the parking lots.
A wireless network for Students to use with their personal laptops, is available throughout campus with the SSID NCC-STUDENT. This network is configured with WPA Enterprise authentication and AES encryption, which utilizes your NETID and password for logon.
The IT Department is not responsible for updating, configuring, repairing, or otherwise troubleshooting personal laptops. This includes, but is not limited to, damage caused by malicious software or people, both in person and over the network or Internet.
All Student owned Laptops must have a wireless network card capable of 802.11 A (Wireless A), 802.11 G (Wireless G), or 802.11N (Wireless N) speeds. Laptops with an 802.11 B (Wireless B) network card will not be capable of seeing the wireless network, and will not be able to connect.
The latest Microsoft Windows Updates are required to support authentication to this network. You will not be able to connect to the SSID NCC-STUDENT without having these updates. You must download the updates from another location (such as your home) prior to bringing your laptop to campus.
