Wanted to let everyone know that we have available WiFi access in our parking lot running parallel to the railroad tracks. This is available for anyone to use and does not require a password to connect to. For those concerned with the security aspect of it, it is completely isolated from our network, and all guest connections are isolated from each other. Everyone gets their own connection to the internet and to nothing else. This is also filtered minimally to try and limit the false positives that would be blocked, but also prevent abuse and access to not so good things. The signal is strong enough for it to be used in your vehicle, so there is no need to congregate near the entrances.

The network name is "EISD Public WiFi" and once connected your device will prompt you to agree to the terms and conditions. The terms just say that you will not do anything illegal and we reserve the right to block devices that are using it appropriately.

If you have any questions or concerns please feel free to contact cfikes@evadalek12.net.
