Folsom Lake College WiFi Access

Wireless Internet access is available at all three of our campuses. The LRCCD wireless network provides access to the Internet and most web-based systems in the Los Rios network. Authentification is required to access this network, and users must have a Los Rios Unified Login account. Students, faculty and staff who wish to use the wireless internet will need to bring their own WiFi-enabled laptop computer to campus. Folsom Lake College will NOT provide wireless cards. Most WiFi equipment will be compatible, but compatibility is not guaranteed.

Requirements

  • Access to the LRCCD wireless network is available to students, faculty and staff only.
  • Folsom Lake College uses the WiFi standard (IEEE 802.11a, IEEE 802.11b, and IEEE 802.11g), providing students with high speed connection. [Speed varies by location and the number of users.]
  • It is solely the responsibility of the wireless device owner/user to provide anti-virus protection, and to configure their wireless device to the appropriate security setting. Folsom Lake College will not take responsibility for damages incurred for incorrect, insufficient, or incomplete security settings; or lack of up-to-date virus protection.
  • Folsom Lake College cannot be responsible for any changes made to your computer. Folsom Lake College faculty and staff will not help configure a student's machine. Every computer is different, students will be responsible for knowing how to configure and operate their own equipment.
  • Printers are not available to wireless users at this time.

Wireless Internet Use Policy
The following activities are not allowed:

  • Transmitting unsolicited information that contains profane language, or panders to bigotry, sexism, or other forms of discrimination.
  • Using the internet to gain unauthorized access to any computer.
  • Engaging in personal attacks: writing bullying, intimidating, threatening or harassing entries.
  • Making threats (directed towards others or yourself) without expecting the recipients of those threats, the college, and the police to consider them real.
  • Transmitting information that contains obscene, indecent, lewd or lascivious material or other material where other individuals could potentially view it.
  • Inappropriate mass mailing, which includes multiple mailing to newsgroups, mailing lists, or individuals, e.g. "spamming", "flooding", or "bombing".
  • Attempts by students to obtain, manipulate, delete, or change the contents of another user's files, passwords, etc., are regarded as infractions of the January 1980 California Computer Crime Penal Code (Senate Bill No. 66). Attempts to ‘break' the operating system constitute a felony under this law.
