Parkland Wi-Fi (Student Access) - Mac

Description of how students can access the Parkland Wi-Fi on campus from a Mac computer.

The "Parkland" SSID is intended for use by Parkland students and guests.
  • Logins with ParklandOne credentials are retained for 2 weeks preventing the need to authenticate on a daily basis as long as the device is active on Parkland’s Wi-Fi network within the 2 week time frame. The previous  timeout was 6 hours which required users to login each day.
  • Additional authorization methods have been added.  Guests may now login by using their Facebook or Google credentials.  They will need to connect to the "Parkland" SSID, and then select the appropriate authentication choice.  Timeout is set to 2 hours.  This will reduce the need to create guest accounts. For more information, please see Parkland Wi-Fi - Guest Access .
  • Traffic on the Parkland SSID is not encrypted (unless you are accessing a secure site via HTTPS).
  • Users will be given limited access to Parkland network resources.
