Connecting to the internet

Topic Progress:

Now that all of your hardware is set up correctly, it’s time to start thinking about making the most of technology in your classroom. First things first, you may want to connect to the internet.

There are two ways to connect:

  1. Wireless Connection
  2. Ethernet connection

Wireless Connection

Swipe from the left edge of your screen to access installed apps, arranged by category, then tap the Gear icon.

Tap the Settings icon.

Tap the Wi-Fi toggle button to ensure that it is set to the ‘on’ position. The device will now search for available Wi-Fi connections. Touch the Wi-Fi network you wish to connect to and enter any connection details if required.

Ethernet Connection

To use the ActivConnect OPS-G device on your school network through the Ethernet cable you may need a network administrator or someone who is comfortable with entering Proxy Settings.

You can access these settings by following the steps above, so to reiterate:

  1. swipe from the left side of the ActivPanel screen
  2. tap the gear icon
  3. tap the settings icon
  4. choose your internet connection type
