How to Connect to a Wireless Network

Wireless Network: RCCD_Inet

RCCD_Inet allows users to access the internet without having to login over and over again. There is no time limit to this network and no splash screen before you login. The network is also encrypted and more secure. This is the preferred wireless network!

All users need to follow RCCD's Board Policy AP 3720, Computer and Network Use.
