Adding your Device To The Clarendon 3 WiFiIn order to enable your device to use our District WiFi, you will need to do complete the following steps:
1. Verify the Name Of Your DeviceWhen your device connects to a network, it is identified by its hostname. The defualt hostname is unrecognizable to technology staff, so we need to change it to be easily identifiable to its owner.
- On your device, tap Settings > General > About
- Tap the first line, which displays the name of your device.
- Rename it to be firstinitiallastname-macXX.
- Example: John Doe would name his device jdoe-mac01.
- With any additional iPads in the classroom, increase the number.
2. Connect and Set Up The MDM Security ProfileIn order to connect to our District network, Clarendon3-Guest, all devices MUST have a local security profile.
Connect to Clarendon3-Guest and follow the below steps.
