Verizon Hot Spot Instructions

To support off-campus learning for grade 6-12 students, WWPS is loaning Mobile Hot Spots to district families without internet access at home.

The Hot Spot provides internet access using cell phone towers, just like a cell phone does. Hot spots do not supplement or strengthen existing home network performance.

There is no limit on traffic for hotspots.

Turning a Hot Spot On or Off

When you first plug in the Hot Spot it is in battery charging mode.

To turn the Hot Spot on, press and hold the small power button on the front until you see the word "Welcome" appear on the screen on top.

To turn it off, press and hold the power button until you see "Goodbye" on the screen.

Connecting to the Network

The Hot Spot box will have a sticker with its network name (SSID) and password.

1. On a Chromebook, click the pie wedge shaped WiFi icon in the lower right corner of the screen.
2. Click the little arrow next to the current network, or on the WiFi icon (depending on the model) to open the network connections menu.
3. Select the hot spot's SSID from the listed available networks.
4. Enter the password if prompted.

Responsible Use Guidelines

WWPS wants to support the best use of technology to support teaching and learning. We value the partnership of parents and caregivers when learning occurs outside of the school building. As an important reminder, all students and adults using WWPS technology platforms must adhere to the expectations set forth in the WWPS Responsible Use Procedure.
