NSCC's Wireless Network

NSCC Wireless Access Is Changing

On Wednesday, January 15 new features will be enabled providing convenience and enhanced security for the NSCC wireless network. Important: How you access the NSCC wireless network will change slightly beginning Wednesday, January 15.

Enhancements include:

  • From any device, IPhone, iPad, Netbook, laptop, etc. you only need to log in one time per day, per device, per campus
  • Additional security encryption measures enabled for wireless data

Instructions to Access the Wireless Network

  1. The NSCC wireless network name has changed from W1R3L355@N5CC to NSCCwireless – Connect your device(s) to the newly named NSCCwireless network.
  2. The first time connecting to the NSCCwireless network a new form will display asking for either a network security passphrase or password – Dependent on the device you are using the form prompts for a network security key or password and may look similar to the two examples below. The password / network security key for all users is northshore (all in lower case). Note: This step only needs to be done one time per device – remember the security key / passphrase at this initial form is northshore and not your campus pipeline username or password.
