WiFi

If WiFi is not available, i.e. you cannot see the TararuaTC SSID (access code is Waerenga1961), the router may have been reset. If you can see either of the SSIDs SPARK-B618-5G-9576 or SPARK-B618-9576 use them with the access code HB2J221HENF.

The WiFi router is located in the Library room. If there is no WiFi and you have access to the room check the power is on on the router and power the router off and on.

If there is still no WiFi please advise the Hall booking officer.

As a work around find someone who has mobile data available on their phone and use that phone to "hotspot" the laptop.
