Wireless Network Access

So you want to access our wireless network? Good News! Our wireless network is open to all faculty, staff, and students with a wireless device (iPhone, iPad, Android phone or tablet, laptop, etc.). Simply follow the following steps:

  1. Find our wireless network on your device. Its name or SSID is 8n8.
  2. Click Connect.
  3. When prompted for a wireless access code, enter “BeOurGuest!!” (without the quotes). Remember to enter exactly the capitalization as it is typed above. Also don’t forget the double exclamation marks: “!!”.
  4. Allow a minute or so for the code to be recognized, then open your Internet browser.
  5. When the Security Certificate warning appears, click to accept the certificate despite the warning.
  6. Finally, you will be prompted to enter your credentials for Web Authorization.
    1. For Faculty/Staff and High School Students
      Enter your M-DCPS email/portal username (your employee number or student ID number) and your M-DCPS email/portal password.
    2. For Adult Vocational Students
      Enter “participate\NNNNNNNN” (without the quotes and NNNNNNNN is your 8-digit student ID number) and your M-DCPS email/portal password. Your default email/portal password is MMYYYYpw (MM is your birth month and YYYY is your birth year). For example if your birthday is April 22, 1989, your default portal password is 041989pw.
