Network / Wi-Fi

Wi-Fi Networks

Quick answer: BSD-Secure is for staff and students including their personal devices such as phones/tablets/laptops. BSD-Guest is for visitors that don’t have bethel accounts. Such as a guest speaker from Company X.


This network is to be used by all Bethel Staff and Students weather its district owned or personal property. Use your username (first.last example: john.smith) and the same password you use to login to e-mail or a district machine.

Student’s BYOD devices will be handled identically to staff BYOD devices. Students should use the BSD-Secure network for their personal phones, tablets or laptops. When logging into a lab PC or their own BYOD device, they will be web-filtered according to the preset (K-4 or 5-12) group filter. Again, students should not use the BSD-Guest network for any reason.

IMPORTANT: If you bring-your-own-device (BYOD) such as a phone, tablet or personal laptop, simply connect to the BSD-Secure network using your domain username and password (the same credentials you use to login to your PC). The only difference is that your BYOD device will not be allowed access to internal resources other than email (so no printing, file services, etc.). You will, however, receive the same web filtering level as you would on your PC.


This network is for guests only and not for use by staff or students for any reason. We have a very limited number of guest network licenses so it is critical that BSD-Guest connectivity is reserved for out-of-district visitors only.

  1. Open Control Panel, click on Work Folders

  3. On the next page, enter your full Bethel email address, click the Next button.

File Back Up | P: Drive

Remember to keep your files backed up! You are not immune to hard drive failures. All electronics fail at some point.

It’s highly recommend you save all your work to your P: Drive. This drive can be found by going to Start > Computer > P: (Drive with your name) Anohter benefit to this is no matter what distict machine you login to you’ll be able to access any files saved in your network folder. Say you were in the computer lab. Signed in and realized you forgot to print off the assignment. Instead of going back to your classroom you could sign into a lab machine, go to your P: drive and print the document!

This drive is located on our servers which are backup every night to 2 different buildings in our district.
