Judicial Guest Wireless Network Instructions

View instructions and FAQs for connecting to the judicial guest wireless network in county courtrooms.



As part of ongoing eCourts initiatives, the Judicial Branch is further expanding courtroom wireless. Guests who want to utilize courthouse wireless will be required to walk through a multi-step process, using their wireless device, to validate their credentials. This is a NEW process and will be required of all guests during their first attempt to use the new expanded wireless system. See WAVE Wireless Guest Access Instructions in the files above to walk through the new process.

There are court facilities still undergoing wireless expansion. Judicial guests visiting these facilities will continue to use the process provided in Judicial Guest Wireless Network Instructions (PDF above). Find your county in the map below (green = use WAVE Wireless Guest instructions).
