*LIST of Library Information: WiFi & Web Access

Off-campus access to online databases and e-books

Off-campus access to online databases and e-books is available to current FVTC students, faculty, & staff.

To access FVTC Library databases from off-campus
through the Library proxy:


Students: Username is your MyFVTC ID@fvtc.edu (EX: 123456789@fvtc.edu )
Password is your MyFVTC password.

Staff: Username is your network ID@fvtc.edu (EX: name@fvtc.edu)
Password is your network (MyFVTC) password.
You must place @fvtc.edu after your ID or it will not work
 

WiFi for IOS - Apple products like iPhone and iPad

All FVTC managed devices use FVTC-PSK Wi-Fi.  Therefore, the Library iPads are on FVTC-PSK and connect to the Apple TV devices on FVTC-PSK on campus (i.e., in our study rooms) through Wi-Fi.

  • Some Apple devices may not connect right away.  You may need to "Forget" all other networks before it will connect you to FVTC-Secure.
  • By using your sign-in information, you accept the College Acceptable Computer Use Policy, so please, don't log in others with your name.

Personal devices can connect to FVTC-Secure Wi-Fi, but you need to use Bluetooth when connecting your personal devices, such as iPhones, to library Apple TV devices in the library study rooms.

To do this using an iPhone:

  1. Turn on the TV and change the input on the TV screen to the Apple TV connection.
  2. On your iPhone, swipe up from the bottom of the screen.  Make sure Bluetooth is on.  You should see the Apple TV in the list of Apple TV devices displayed.
  3. Select it.
  4. Slide the slide bar to ‘Mirror on’.
  5. When the 4 digit code appears on the TV screen, enter it on your iPhone at the prompt to pair with the Apple TV.

And that is it. The TV screen will now display anything being displayed on your iPhone.

Use FVTC-Secure OR FVTC-Public to connect to FVTC WiFi

The network for all your devices (either college or personal) is:  FVTC-Secure
Staff can use their network ID (the regular staff login, without the "@fvtc.edu" at the end) and current password to log in.
Students can use this network too, using their nine-digit student ID number (do not add "@fvtc.edu") and current password. 

  • By using your sign-in information, you accept the College's Acceptable Computer Use Policy. Please don't allow others to log in with your account!
  • This network will require you to enter your staff/student user ID and MyFVTC password to access it, but once that is entered, you may choose to allow the network to automatically connect to your phone, device or laptop when you come to ANY FVTC Campus or Regional Center.

If your computer does not auto-detect the wireless settings, set the wireless card to "Infrastructure" or "Access Point" mode. Set the SSID to FVTC-Secure if you have an active MyFVTC account, or, if you are a Guest, then set it to FVTC-Public.

If you use FVTC-Public, you will need to go to the FVTC webpage to accept the terms of use agreement every time you re-connect to the FVTC WiFi network.


Here are a few questions you might have:
 
I have an active MyFVTC account. How do I get on the new network?

  • First, we recommend that you “Forget” any older FVTC networks on your device (such as ENTP-AES). You can do this in your device settings or device WiFi connections. 
  • Then, in your device settings or WiFi connections, search for or “discover” all wireless networks. 
  • Select "FVTC-Secure," then enter in your user ID and password.  

I do not have an active MyFVTC account? How do I get on the new network?

  • Inactive accounts or guests will have access to FVTC-PublicThis network does NOT require a password to use, although you will still need to accept FVTC's terms of use.

 What happens when I change my password?

  • Most devices will prompt you for a new WiFi password when your device detects a change. Otherwise, you may have to repeat the steps above in order to reconnect.
