RVCC Wireless Access Information

RVCC Wireless Network... The RVCC wireless network is available in all buildings on campus and in several outside areas such as the Quadrangle bordered by the Planetarium, Somerset Hall and Hunterdon Hall. 

To gain access, you will need to stop by one of the MIS Help Desk locations (S118 or W206) and  fill out a Wireless Access User Agreement.    You only need to do this one time.  Raritan Valley Community College Wireless Access User Agreement and the RVCC Wireless Computer Use Policy. Please contact the MIS Help Desk if you have any questions or problems using our wireless network. Your account will be created within 24 - 48 hours after we receive your completed Wireless Access User Agreement Form.

The MAC address on your Wireless card will be registered on our network and your access will be setup after you provide us with signed copies of the documents noted above. Please note that if you change network adapters you will need to visit the MIS Help Desk and re-register your new adapter.

The Raritan Valley Community College Wireless Network has been tested with the following Wireless cards:

  • Cisco Aironet 802.11b Wireless Adapter
  • Cisco Aironet 802.11a Wireless Adapter
  • Linksys 802.11g Wireless Adapter

Even though other 802.11a and 802.11b Wireless network adapters may be compatible, RVCC will not guarantee they will work with our system.

Once your access has been setup we will provide the information that needs to be configured on your laptop before it will work with our Wireless network. Please consult the manual that came with your Wireless adaptor to configure the following.

Examples of the information we'll provide:

  • SSID: rvccxxxx
  • WEP KEYS: KEY1: XXxxxXX222Xxx22XXX22xxXX22 (26 characters)
  • KEY2: xx22XXX2XxXX222X22XXXxxx22 (26 characters)
    Note: Set KEY2 as transmit KEY


RVCC cannot assist with Wireless configuration on a user'slaptop. We ask that the user consults the user manual that came with their Wireless adaptor for configuration.
