WiFi access

Connecting to WiFi

In you're at Ipswich, Toowoomba, Warwick or Kingaroy, you'll need to connect to the TAFE_OPEN wireless network.

For students: your username or identity (android) is studentnumber@student.tafe (for example: 124567890@student.tafe).

For staff: your username or identity (android) is networkusername@staff.tafe and your network password.

Connecting is easy. If you have any trouble, please talk to a TAFE Queensland staff member or follow the instructions below:

Safety first

To help protect our network, we'll check your device doesn't have any nasties in it. We're looking for:

  • The Windows update status on a Windows device
  • A working firewall (these are usually already in your operating system)
  • A virus scanner that is up-to-date.

Don't worry if your device doesn't have these or isn't up-to-date, we canl help fix it.

If you don't have the latest Windows or virus updates, you'll still get internet access to download these. But you must install a virus scanner before you can login to the network. For devices that aren't Windows-based, it's still pretty much the same but your access may be restricted. You may get internet access but not access to the education network.
