TCDconnect - How to connect Windows Mobile devices to student WiFi network

Connection process for Windows Phone devices

In order to successfully follow the steps below you must be in an area of Trinity with Wi-Fi coverage (see the Trinity Wi-Fi coverage information page). Once you have completed the first set of steps below you will be able to register on the TCDconnect service, connect to the Trinity Wi-Fi network and gain fast, secure internet access. Those using the service are assumed to have read and agreed to the terms and conditions.

Broadly speaking there are two steps to carry out in order to get connected:

  1. Configure your Wi-Fi settings
  2. Set a device PIN/password to protect the security of your device in case of theft or accidental lost

Step 1: Configuring & Registering your Windows device to connect to TCDwifi:

  1. Choose the Settings option and then Wi-Fi
  2. Ensure Wi-Fi networking is On
  3. Select Advanced, then the + symbol
  4. Under Add WiFi network, enter TCDwifi as the Network name
  5. Select Add
  6. Enter your Trinity username and network login password
  7. Select Done
  8. You may see the following message:

    Continue connecting?
    If you expect to find TCDwifi in this location, go ahead and connect.
    Otherwise, it may be a different network with the same name.

    Select Connect

  9. If your version of Windows Phone prompts for additional information please use the following settings:
    For Security Type choose WPA2 Enterprise
    For Encryption type choose AES
    For Network Authentication method choose PEAP
    For Phase-2 authentication choose mschapv2
    Ensure that Validate Server Certificate is not selected

  10. Once connected, open Internet Explorer and browse to any external site such as http://www.irishtimes.com and you will be automatically redirected to the TCDconnect Welcome Page, follow the web page instructions and proceed through the registration process.

Step 2: Set a device PIN/password (if not already done so)

You can choose either PIN or password, but it is better to choose a password and it should be at least 6-8 characters with a number and at least one character in uppercase. To set a password, go to Settings - Lock & Wallpaper - select Password On, enter your password, confirm your password and tap Done.


Removal Instructions

To remove the TCDwifi profile, choose Settings - Wi-Fi, select Advanced, tap the Select icon, select TCDwifi and then select the Trash icon. This removes the Wi-Fi connection from your device.
