To assist users with some of the more commonly encountered issues with connectivity to the wireless access points, staff members have documented a number of steps to assist users with technical difficulties.

These access points can be identified by large red signs that state “WI-FI SBCC wireless” and are posted in the general location of the wireless connection points.
