Description/Steps for Resolution

Step Three - Select a Network

Detected networks automatically show up in the menu. To connect to a network, simply select its name.  In this case, select CCS Net from the list.

NOTE - If you are in range of a CCS wireless access point, your Chromebook 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.  (NOTE:  do not put any value into the Anonymous Identity field.)

Step Four - Enter Settings
In the dialog box that appears you will need to complete the settings as shown in Screen 1.
