If you have already attempted to join SMCC-Gaming with your device before registering it, you may need to disconnect from the network and wait 15-20 minutes before trying to connect again. You may also call the IT HelpDesk at 207-741-5696 or submit a ticket to expedite this process.


Device-to-device communication is not permitted on the SMCC-Gaming network. This restriction was implemented to prevent users from attacking other devices on the network (example: unwanted printing on wireless printers). However, in some cases, this also prevents 'smart' devices from working properly.
