NCC_Entertainment Network

The wireless entertainment network is designed to allow devices to connect to the network that are NOT able to connect using a wired connection or do not support the ability to enter a username and password to authenticate to wireless.  Please continue to connect devices equipped with an Ethernet port to the wired network. Wired connections will provide faster and more reliable network access. Computers, tablets and phones should continue to be connected to the NCC_Wireless network.
