Wireless access is now available throughout the district. If you cannot access wireless from anywhere you need to please let us know by creating a helpdesk ticket describing your needs. Create a helpdesk ticket by sending an email to email@example.com
There are now two wireless networks available: “Guest” and “PASD”
The “Guest” network is for students, community members or employees using personal devices. The “Guest” network provides access to the internet only and content is strictly filtered.
The "PASD" network is for staff members using district equipment. The “PASD” network allows access to local network resources (printers, file servers, peer connections,…) and the internet with filtering set based on role with the district (Administration, Faculty, Student,…).
This network is for Students, Community Members, and Employees on non-district equipment such as a laptop or smart device.
Accessing the “Guest” network
Accessing the "PASD" network
From a Windows Computer
In the lower right hand corner of your screen (by the clock) click the small network
It will often look like a rising stack of towers or a series of waves .
Select the "PASD Setup" network from the list. Once selected a browser window will launch (if the browser does not launch automatically do it open the browser manually) asking you for your district credentials .
This is your user name and password assigned by the district (first initial, last name and whatever password you use to login to your faculty computer or check your portangelesschools.org email). Once authenticated you will be prompted to run the Prov.exe setup (this should attempt to auto-run but if not follow the prompts until it installs). If Prov.exe is able to run you will automatically be transferred to the "PASD" wireless network.
If the installer is unable to run, you will have to manually connect to the "PASD" network. In the image to the right you can see a link directly below the light blue bar to manually connect. Click the link and proceed to the next screen.
Manually Setting Up PASD Network: If Prov.exe did not run and connect you automatically you will need to copy the network key (see image right) and use that to connect. After copying the network key, click your wireless connection icon in the tray, and select the PASD network. This will prompt you for a key. Paste the key you copied into this box and click ok.
Connecting a Mobile Device to Wi-Fi
The process of connecting a mobile device to our network will be very similar to a pc. Depending what type of device you have (Apple which uses the iOS or a variation of the Android OS) will determine how you access your wifi options. Please note that your device may vary from these instructions somewhat.
Connect to "Guest" for access to the "Guest" network.
Connect to "PASD Setup" to access the "PASD" network.
Access will be simular to connecting a PC. See above. (Accessing the PASD network)
Located on your iphone or ipad desktop will be an icon similar to the one pictured on the right. This is the settings icon for your device. You will click this and proceed to the settings menu.
In the settings menu, you will see an option for Wi-Fi. Click this to proceed to network selection. In the Wi-Fi menu (pictured to the right) you should see a "Guest" network, "PASD setup", and a "PASD" network.
Connecting to the wifi in the district on your Android is similar to connecting anywhere else with a few additional steps. Access your settings menu by "pulling down" the top of the screen or accessing it through apps. You can choose which wi-fi to connect to by press and holding on the wifi icon (see image to right). This will present you with a list of networks to connect to.
