Connecting to WiFi

Under our bring your own device (BYOD) program, students can bring in devices from different platforms including:

  • Chromebook
  • Windows laptop
  • Android tablet
  • iPad
  • Macbook, and others.

The school’s Wi-Fi has the capability to connect to all these devices, provided they meet the ‘Wireless Compatibility’ requirement as listed in the ‘BYOD – Device Specifications Checklist’ section.

Basically, a 5 GHz - 802.11n connection
However, the Wi-Fi connection settings vary for these devices from different platforms. For example; a Windows device will have different settings to a Macbook. An iPad will have a different setup for connecting to the Wi-Fi compared to an Andriod tablet, this will connect differently to a Chromebook.

The following pages give instructions for connecting various devices or platforms to the school’s Wi-Fi.

Please remember that no matter which device, or which platform, a successful connection is a two-step process.
