Connecting to the GAA Secure WiFi Network

Solution

Visitors to GAA must request a guest voucher from the business office. Enter the voucher code in the appropriate field in the guest portal.

All GAA staff and students will connect to the "GAA Secure" WiFi network. Please follow the instructions below for access.

Prerequisites - New Users

A school-issued G Suite account is required for encrypted WiFi access on the GAA campus. New students and faculty are assigned a username and temporary password. The temporary password must be changed prior to connecting to GAA Secure.

To change the temporary password, connect to the GAA Guest network, then open a browser and go to www.google.com. Click the blue "Sign In" button in the top right corner of the browser window.

Use your full email address (e.g., user@glendaleacademy.org) as your username, then click "Next". At the next screen, enter the temporary password and click "Next". Accept the user agreement to continue. For assistance with the G Suite account, please click here to fill out a support ticket.

 

 

Create and confirm a new password in the next section, then click "Change password".

 

 

Once a new password has been created, you will be logged into Google. To verify, click on the letter in the colored circle on the top right of the browser window and it will display the account which is signed in.

Continue with the instructions below for your specific operating system.
