Here are some things to check in your settings. These steps may or may not resolve the issue for you, but they are worth a try.
First, on an SDW issued Mac, you want to make sure you are always connecting to SDW Secure network. Other networks will cause connectivity issues while in district.
- Update your Mac when they are available. I regularly talk to teachers who are having issues with their Mac, but then they do the update and the issues are resolved. It's a good habit, and it's a good thing to recommend to others.
- Shut down your computer. Some of us use our computers so often that we never shut them down. Powering them all the way off and turning them back on actually resolves many issues.
- Finally, do not accept that it just doesn't work. Our computers and iPads are quality machines in a very robust wireless network. If you are having connectivity issues, submit a Help Desk ticket. The Tech Department wants to fix these issues, but they cannot fix issues they do not know about.
