Guest Wireless Network


The GordonGUEST wireless network is intended to allow visitors to campus to use the Gordon College network resources.  Once you connect to this network, you will be authorized to use it for 12 hours, and can renew the connection if needed. 

Please note: Students, Faculty & Staff should use the GordonNET wireless network and not the GordonGUEST network. Follow the format "firstname.lastname" and use your Gordon password. Alumni who have a Gordon College username and password do not need to register for a temporary password. They can use the "Alumni" link to receive special wireless access. 

To connect to the GordonGUEST wireless network:

  1. Windows Computers 

    In the bottom right hand corner of the screen, click the wi-fi bars on the task bar. 

    From the list of networks that comes up, select GordonGUEST and click "Connect."

    Now open a web browser on your computer. Upon attempting to access a website, you will be redirected to the Guest Registration page. 

    Enter your name, cell phone number (not required), mobile carrier (not required), and email address. Check the box confirming that you accept the terms of use. Then click "Register."

    Please note that if you do not enter a cell phone number and mobile carrier, the necessary information will only be sent to the email you provide. (If you enter a value for phone, carrier, and email, login information will be sent to both your phone and your email). 

    Your login information will now be sent to your phone and/or email. (You can also download a file containing the information by clicking "Download account details.")

    Now click "Log In." Enter the username and password that you received on your phone/email/downloaded file. Then check the box labeled "I accept the terms of use," and click "Log In."

    You will be redirected to www.gordon.edu and will be able to browse the internet. 

    Your account will expire on the date listed on the text/email/downloaded file. If you get logged out of the guest network, you can log back in.

    Fill in the required fields, check the "Confirm" checkbox, and click "Register."

    Shortly after this, you will receive a text to your phone, if you have provided a number. If you did not provide a number, look for the small floppy disk icon "Download Account Details". This will download a small text file with your username (your provided email address) and password.
