Having Problems Connecting?
If you have followed the configuration guides and still have problems connecting check out the FAQs.
If you still cannot connect, contact the CHECiT Help Desk in A.G.11. Please be aware that we can only have a quick look (< 5 mins). If the problem takes longer than this to resolve we will book the laptop in to a wireless support clinic.
The wireless support clinics involve signing a (damage) disclaimer form, leaving the laptop & power adapter and any passwords with the Help Desk. They are run by the Client Technology Support (CTS) team each weekday between 11am and 12pm.
