Clemson Guest Wireless Solution Clemson now has a guest wireless solution broadcasted as clemsonguest for all campus guests to have Internet access while visiting. The guest solution is a provisioned based solution meaning that a USERID and Password have to be generated in order to gain access. The primary method is for a designated provisioner to provision the ID ahead of time and distribute to the guest prior to or upon arrival. If that is not a feasible solution, then the guest can go to the selfprovisioning page linked off the Clemsonguest portal page and provision a USERID. They must provide either a valid email address or cell phone for SMS text messaging in order to receive their password. Provisioning Page All faculty and staff can provision an account for their guest by going to the provisioning page at http://www.clemson.edu/guest and provision accounts for guests in their area. Hereand39s a walkthrough on using the provisioning page:The Guest Manager Page for provisioners is shown below.
