This document details how to connect to FCPSmobile. The OneDrive mirror is available here: http://sdrv.ms/1ajaONj. The Google Drive mirror can be found here: https://docs.google.com/document/d/1HnXgemkcnAXMiW74pc2YK2cp5fIn-yGxNlUo9DgiGbU/edit?usp=sharing. Just connect and go! Makes auto-reconnects faster and easier too. and email ports have been opened up, so your <whatever’s> email client like Outlook, Thunderbird or your iPhone’s email app should work properly. The internet here sometimes just plain doesn’t feel like working, so try again later. It is a pain, I know.
Things you’ll need for initial setup:
- A Windows laptop (I personally know Windows Vista, 7, and 8 to work)
- Select FCPSmobile from the list of available Wi-Fi networks.
- It should prompt for a username and password. (or with a notification asking for additional info.)
- If it’s your first time setting it up this school year, proceed. If not, this isn’t for you.
(yes that is indeed a backslash, typically found right above the enter key.)
- ”FCPSEDU\” may not be necessary on non-Windows systems. If it doesn’t work one way, try it the other way.
- Sometimes, like in Windows Vista for example, it may have three fields: Username, Password, and Domain as opposed to just the typical Username and Password inputs. FCPSEDU is the domain, so if there’s a Domain field, put FCPSEDU there and only put your Student ID for the username.
- Ex. 1234557Dec
- A dialog will likely pop up, asking about a certificate, asking whether to “Terminate” or “Connect” (in Windows 7 for example.), you want to Connect of course! It will vary a bit between OSes (Windows Vista and iOS ask for the user to Accept.), but in general, answer in the affirmative.
- It should ask for a new password, which you will now provide. Use whatever you want, although it may be nice to use your Iodine or Blackboard password.
- Once it works, you can spread the Wi-Fi love to your Macbook, Lumia, Galaxy, neural interface… (You will likely have to accept the certificate on those as noted above in Step 4.)
- If it doesn’t work, congratulations, you borked it.
- It may take a few goes, or you can ask the Hamilton about it if all else fails.
- If you wish to connect to Fairfax, it should be the same username and password. I do not know about setting it up for the first time, and whether that will work, sorry.
- The encryption for the Linux/advanced users is WPA2 Enterprise (PEAP & MSCHAPV2), so make sure your device supports it/you set up the connection accordingly. (shouldn’t be a problem at all if it’s recent.)
- If your device (like a Wi-Fi enabled Pocket PC or Palm PDA) is too old and doesn’t support WPA2, I salute you for having it, but you are delegated to the open, second-class FCPS network, sorry.
