Wireless Access after School Hours

Wireless services are available around the clock within the boundaries of our facilities for any NTHS Faculty or Student. If you are using a wireless device that has been pre-configured to use the NTHS-Faculty wireless network, then there is no further action required and you should be able to connect to our network seamlessly. If you choose to connect via the NTHS-Student wireless network, upon opening your browser, you will be prompted to log in with your regular credentials. Even thou our wireless network is available at all the times, access to it by visitors and guests is only possible by using the guest account. The guest account is for temporary use only and active (enabled) only during weekdays between 7:00 a.m and 9:00 p.m. Faculty and staff members hosting events or visitors that will require guest access to our wireless network should contact the HelpDesk, ahead of time, to enquire about the guest account information and also to inform the IS office of their intentions. It is possible to expand the hours or even enable weekend access to the guest account but we need early notification and also, we need you to test ahead of time to avoid last minute pitfalls. Finally, since the guest account information gets shared a lot, we feel that in order to protect our data network and limit access to uninvited guests, its password needs to be reset very often thus we ask you to find out from the Help Desk the new password EVERY time that you plan on using it.
