These instructions will help you set up your wireless connection on campus. Before beginning, you
need:

log in to http://www.eac.edu , click the Gila Hank On-Line link and follow the instructions. You

with step 7 you will need to be on campus at one of the hotspots on campus to complete the wireless
setup. Check the Student Network Access Resource Page,
http://www.eac.edu/Student_Services/Computer_Services/Student_Network/default.shtm, for a current
list of hot spots.
