Difference Between FSC_Secure and FSC_WiFi

FSC_Secure
Is for any devices that can authenticate via WPA2-Enterprise. This would be for Windows, Macs, iOS, Android and other devices. It is more secure as it individually encrypts each session.

* You will have to re-connect to the wireless every 120 days or when you change your password.

FSC_WiFi
Open WiFi network (no network level encryption).  It requires associating your MAC address to a username. That username/MAC association is then stored for 120 days. FSC_WiFi is all encompassing and is for those that cannot or do not want to connect to FSC_Secure.

* You will have to re-connect to the wireless every 120 days.
