• The Fort Bend ISD BYOD wireless network provides an experience similar to most retail shops, hospitals or hotels that provide wireless internet access as a hospitality service. Access is through a web portal that requires username and password along with accepting the Terms of Use.

     

    Users should select the FBISD_BYOD network in the choice of wireless networks on their device.  Most devices will start a browser session to help initiate the login.  If not, the user will need to start a browser session and navigate to a familiar web page.  Note that all traffic is firewalled and filtered in accordance with District procedures.
