Wi-Fi Access

Note: Use of RVC Wi-Fi requires authentication via an account because RVC is required to track any access to the Internet.  Employees and Students have accounts for access. Employees may request an account for a Guest by using the Quarry/InfoTech/ITHelpDesk/GuestNetworkAccountRequest button. 

RVC- Secure Authentication and Access

The Secure Authentication and Access method is preferred and requires one-time setup on your wireless device.  It uses WPA2 Enterprise security and therefore does not require you to manually supply login credentials on a daily basis.


RVC-Easy-Web-Internet Access

RVC-Easy-Web-Internet is a temporary and easy way to get Internet access and requires you to use your web browser to authenticate. It is an unsecured, but authenticated method for accessing the Internet.


iOS Mirroring

If you are an employee and have an Apple iOS device, we have several enabled locations which allow you to 'mirror' your device output to the workstation and onto the projector, using RVC's wi-fi. These instructions are subject to change as we roll out more areas which are enabled for mirroring.


Test Video Files

These video files are local at RVC and will help you test if your wi-fi connection is working OK or not.  If these local RVC videos play OK, but other Internet-based videos do not, then the problem is due to delays related to Internet services or remote website congestion.


RVC Wireless Access Point Locations

These maps indicate where wireless access points are positioned but may not necessarily indicate signal strength in certain areas.  These maps are subject to change due to adjustments and improvements in our wireless network.  Efforts will be made to update these maps as substantial changes are made by adding or moving wireless access points.
