Texans-Guest Network

Hi Reference Team!

We now have a guest wireless network called Texans-Guest which allows our guest users to sign up for an account in order to use our WIFI on their laptop/mobile devices while on campus.

This is what the user should see on their laptop/device.
NOTE: The guest user can not be affiliated with Tarleton or have a Tarleton email address. They must also submit a valid email address and mobile phone number to register for an account.

Once the user has created an account, it is good for 3 days; however, they must sign in every 24 hours for the account to remain active. After the 3 days, they will need to request another guest account.

NOTE: ITS monitors the request but guests may not have immediate access during "odd" hours such as late nights and weekends. Please make sure that the user is aware; they are welcome to use our computers for Internet access via our Guest Pass system if they do not receive an account for the WIFI immediately.

The user will need to open a web browser in order to access this login screen.
 The user will need to select "Request a Guest Account" if they do not have one already.
All of the fields are required in order to submit a request for a Guest Account.

There will be limited access to campus resources through this network; however, the users should have full access to the library databases.

Please report any issues you encounter with database access to Tracy.

Also, please contact Tracy,the Systems Office, or me if you have any questions.
