    Wireless access to the Internet is available throughout the Largo campus, John Eager Howard Elementary School, Joint Base Andrews Degree Center, Laurel College Center, the Skilled Trades Center, University Town Center, and Westphalia Training Center. Connecting to the Internet requires a wireless enabled device.

     

    Using Windows XP or 7:

    1. Most computers should detect the signal automatically and notify you that it is available. If it is, left-click the wireless icon in the system tray and then select the option: "PGCC-AIR" and click Connect.

       
    2. If Step 1 does not work, you can configure the computer manually by completing the following steps:
      • Click Start > Settings > Network Connections

         
      •  Right-click the Wireless Network icon and click Properties.

         
      • Click the Wireless Networks tab and click View Wireless Networks, then highlight "PGCC-AIR"

         
      • If the Wireless Networks tab is not available, then right-click the Wireless Network icon from the previous window and click enable. Then repeat steps (b) and (c). 

         
      • Click the Connect button and click continue anyway if prompted. 

         
      • The screen should read that PGCC-AIR is connected, then close all open windows.

         
       
    3. Once connected to the network, open your Internet browser. It should immediately redirect you to the Wireless Login page.

       
    4. Please read the instructions on the wireless login page and then login with your email address.
