How to Access the Internet

Pomfret provides two Wifi networks with different types of access:

  • Guest - open access between the hours of 06:00 and 20:00. Connections are limited to websites only.
  • Pomfret - secured network with access hours based on grade level
    1. To authorize your device, connect to the network called "Pomfret".
    2. Try to visit a website (such as cnn.com or weather.com). You may be warned that the site is not secure but it's okay to continue.
    3. Agree to the Acceptable Use Policy
    4. Click the grey "Start" button
    5. Log in with your Pomfret username/password (without the @pomfretschool.org).
    6. Wait about 45 seconds for the registration process to complete.
    7. Once it's finished, close your browser entirely (you can use Command+Q on a Mac)
    8. Either turn off or disconnect from the wifi, wait 10 seconds and reconnect to "Pomfret"
    9. You should now be online
    10. Report any error messages to techsupport@pomfretschool.org or at 860-963-5607
