How to connect to WiFi

Free WiFi is available for all TAFE Queensland SkillsTech students.

If you're at Bracken Ridge, Eagle Farm or Alexandra Hills, connect to the network Open_WiTAFE. Log on instructions can be downloaded here.

For students: studentnumber@student.tafe (e.g. 1234567890@student.tafe)
Password: your network password

For staff: username@staff.tafe and your network password.

 

If you're at Acacia Ridge, you'll need to connect to the TAFE_OPEN wireless network.

For students: username or identity (android): studentnumber@student.tafe (e.g. 1234567890@student.tafe)
Password: your network password.

For staff: username@staff.tafe and your network password.

 

Connecting is easy but we have detailed instructions for all devices and Windows software versions:

Safety first

To help protect our network, we'll check your device doesn't have any nasties in it. We're looking for:

  • The Windows update status on a Windows device
  • A working firewall (these are usually already in your operating system)
  • A virus scanner that is up-to-date.

Don't worry if your device doesn't have these or isn't up-to-date, we'll help fix it.


If you don't have the latest Windows or virus updates, you'll still get internet access to download these. But you must install a virus scanner before you can login to the network.


For devices that aren't Windows-based, it's still pretty much the same but your access may be restricted. You might get internet access but not the education network (sorry, but it's about keeping everyone safe).
