How to Connect for Windows and Mac Users


It typically takes between 30 and 60 seconds for a system to "synch" and gain network access after the network cable is connected. At this point you can open a web browser (i.e Internet Explorer, Netscape, etc.) to see if you are able to open web pages.

Can you open web pages?


Yes. Congratulations! You have successfully connected to the SFA network.


No. You will need to verify that your system is properly configured for the SFA network.
