    1. Check that you are connected to the IllinoisNet wireless network.
    2. Use the control panel to set the source for the desired television to wireless projection.

Solstice connect to a display

  1. You will be prompted to enter the Solstice password. There should be a 4-digit code displayed on the television (it pops up briefly in the center of the television but it will remain displayed in the locations in the photograph below). Enter this as the password. This password changes regularly so you should not bother saving or remembering it. Note: The photograph below was taken in room 4018. The screen you see will have your room number on it and a different password.
