Wireless Internet Access
Wireless internet access is available in the Open Computer Lab in T-315, Pirtle Technology building, Vaughn Library, Jenkins Hall, Potter Hall, and other select locations. The campus wireless infrastructure is currently being improved to increase bandwidth and signal strength, and add authentication for faculty, staff, and students.
Authentication is currently required for wireless networks used by faculty and staff.
Beginning January 1, 2014, the TJC Student wireless network will require you to authenticate when you attach to the network. These changes are necessary to comply with regulatory requirements. When connecting, you will be presented with a sign-on screen that will ask for your username and password.
- Enter your Apache ID number (Example: A00987654) as your User Name.
- Enter your Apache Access password as your Password.
- Click the Log In button.
If you are having difficulty with your Apache Access password, you can access the 24-hour automated password reset utility via the IT Service Desk at 903.510.3269; option #1.
Students living in on-campus residential housing can access the Internet by Ethernet cable in their rooms. Internet in residential housing is provided by Suddenlink. Students may not install their own wireless routers. Unauthorized routers will be confiscated. Students report issues with Internet service directly to Suddenlink. Additional information is available from the office of Residential Life.
