Connecting to JCPL WiFi

If your mobile device does not automatically detect or allow you to connect to the JCPL WiFi network, you may need to change your device’s settings:

  • Try configuring your Wireless Network Connection TCP/IP and DNS to automatic (this may also be phrased as enabling DHCP)
  • Allow your device to connect to an unsecure network (this may appear as a pop-up when you attempt to connect)

Once you have connected to the JCPL WiFi wireless network, you will need to agree to the terms of usage. These terms will appear when you launch your internet browser. If you agree, simply click the button to continue.
