• Connecting to School Wireless

These instructions are for SCGSAH staff, faculty, and students who need to connect to a wireless network. Your SCGSAH affiliation and device type will determine your connection method.

You will need different instructions if you're trying to:

  • Connect to Wi-Fi as a guest
  • Connect a gaming console or media device
  • Find out which devices can't connect to SCGSAH Wi-Fi

Choose the right network for you

There are two wireless networks at SCGSAH — be sure to choose one that matches your affiliation and device.

For devices capable of secure wireless access, typically your laptop or mobile device, we highly recommend that you connect to a secure wireless network. Your options include:

  • SCGSAH, the preferred option when on campus

For devices that do not support secure wireless access, you can only connect to the network named SCGSAH-Guest. This network does not provide encryption, and may result in the exposure of sensitive data. It should only be used when a device cannot connect to SCGSAH.

  • SCGSAH-Guest is the network best-suited for gaming consoles and media devices. Follow these instructions to register a device to the SCGSAH-Guest network.
