Connecting a Notebook or Tablet (Wireless)

If you want to connect your laptop or mobile device to the classroom audiovisual system wirelessly, select the wireless option from system control interface at the front of the room to get started.

The most common wireless option in the classroom is Solstice, but there are also locations with Zoom Room installed (IIES and ECSC).

We recommend downloading the appropriate wireless application on your computer ahead of your class or event.

  2. Enter the IP address display on the Solstice splash page into your preferred web browser (skip to step 4 if you already have the solstice client)
  3. Follow the onscreen instructions to download and install the Solstice client
  4. Enter the IP or name of the pod (if asked) and the 4-digit screen key displayed on the Solstice splash page
  5. Select Share Desktop to share the entire screen or Share Window to display one application
