CCS Net is our college WiFi network, accessible to students and staff.  These instructions detail how to connect to this network from a mobile device running the Android OS.

General Note: With Android being an open source operating system, each installation may be slightly different. These instructions are intended to assist with Wi-Fi configuration for the majority of Android installations, but there have been instances where some Android devices will not connect to CCS Net.

Description/Steps for Resolution

Step One - Open Settings

From your Android device, choose Settings.

Step Two - Wireless Settings
Within Settings, choose Wi-Fi.

Step Three - Access CCS Net

If you are in range of a CCS wireless access point, your Android device should recognize the CCS Net wireless network and show it as a connection option in the Wi-Fi settings. If you do not see it, then you likely need to be closer to a wireless access point. Once it is available, choose CCS Net from the list displayed.

Step Four - Enter Settings
Most of the information on the screen for CCS Net should be pre-filled since Android automatically recognizes the type of wireless security. The only two fields that need to be entered on this screen are the identity and password. For verification, you should see the following fields already populated:

  • Security 802.1x EAP
  • EAP Method PEAP

Step Five - Enter your credentials
Scroll down to the Identity and Password fields and enter your CCS network username in the Identity field and
password in the Password field.   These are the same Username and Password you use for logging in to college-owed computers.  (NOTE:  do not put any value into the Anonymous Identity field.)

Students should add after their username.
Faculty and staff should enter one of the following after their username, depending on which domain they belong to:
