Connect to Staff & Student Wireless (DETNSW)

This article gives step by step instructions, specific to your operating system, to connect to the DETNSW WiFi. This configuration normally only needs to be done once - your settings will be saved and you will just need to connect to the DETNSW access point in the future.

This is the new DoE INTERNET TO THE EDGE internet connection that is faster & more secure. Only available to CHSC staff & students, visiting schools will need to configure proxy settings.


NOTE:

To connect to the DETNSW wireless network you need to know:

1st Login (DETNSW WiFi Network) = DoE credentials firstname.lastnameX. These are the same details you use for the Student/Staff Portal + Email + CHSC Moodle + Stile App.

2nd Login (DoE Internet To Edge Portal) = CHEC credentials (e.g. jsmith or jsmith700). These are the same details you use to login the on-campus computers. You need to have logged into a campus computer & changed the password from the original password.
