  1. Open a web browser and attempt to browse to any site. The ACC wireless gateway will intercept the session and present the user with a login screen.
  2. Enter your ACCeID and password into the login screen.
  3. After authentication, you will be able to browse the Internet.

Note: Only HTTP and HTTPS types of traffic are allowed.
