Wireless Internet Access in the Den
Captain Musick are the first scout group in Auckland to have their den connected to the Internet.
WiFi is available to all Scouts and Parents; the SSID (Wireless Network Name) is CMAS (or CMAS-5G for the 5GHz band), and the current WiFi password can be obtained by asking a Leader. The Password will be changed regularly, so if your device no longer connects, make sure you have the latest password!
We have already used our Den Internet connection to run a Minecraft competition, allowing connection to the server from over the Internet, and for our Cubs’ annual Internet Treasure Hunt competition. We can also use it to show YouTube videos during demonstrations, and for video chat with affiliated Scout groups around the world during JOTI (Jamboree On The Internet) in October.
Changing the Password
We regularly change the WiFi password for security, as there are a large number of people who use it. If you find that you can no longer connect, please ask a Leader who should be able to give you the latest password.
How to change the password on your device depends on your device. However, in most cases (Windows, Android, iOS) you can select the WiFi configuration for the CMAS network and tell your device to ‘forget’ it. Then, when you attempt to connect again, you will be prompted for the (new) password.
Conditions of Use
If you use the den WiFi, please remember that you share it with other users, and do not use excessive data (for example, Skype video calls). Also, it is a condition of use that you do not engage in any illegal activities, including (but not limited to) downloading pirated music, video or software; accessing inappropriate or objectionable material; or accessing other systems without authorisation.
