What is Wireless Internet Access?
It is the ability to access the Internet with a portable computing device without having to plug into a wall outlet. Thus users are free to move about the library and work with their own computers, even in areas of the library where Internet PCs are not available.
Who Can Use Wireless Access? Do I Need A Library Card?
Anyone who complies with the library’s Internet Use Policy may use our wireless access service. A library card is not required at this time.
What Do I Need?
You need a portable laptop computer with a standard wireless network interface (NIC) card, one that is compatible with the Wi-Fi standards called “802.11b” or “802.11g”.
Where Can I Get a Wi-Fi Card?
Many new laptops come with Wi-Fi as a standard feature. Older laptops can be outfitted with an 802.11b or 802.11g wireless network interface (NIC) card at local electronics and computer stores or by purchasing online. Consult your laptop manual for specifications.
Does the Library Provide Laptops or Network cards?
No, users must bring their own equipment.
Where Can I Get Help Setting Up My Laptop for Wireless Access?
If you are not familiar with computers or networking, we recommend bringing someone with you who can help you configure your laptop. Staff are not trained or equipped to configure personal computers for users. Please see our help page.
My Computer Works in the Library But Not Anymore At Home or Work. Why?
If you changed your laptop’s network configuration to make it work in the library, remember to change it back when you are at home or at work.
How Can I Tell Whether the Wireless Network is Working?
After your laptop has been properly configured it should sense the wireless network as soon as you turn it on. If you don’t get a response for two or three minutes, please “re-boot” your laptop and try again.
Where Do I Register for Wireless Access?
Currently, the library does not require users to register before using wireless access. Staff at the Information Desk can answer non-technical questions and the library’s Internet policy is posted in the Computer Room.
Is the Information On My Laptop Safe From Hackers While I Am Connected?
Utilizing virus protection, personal firewall, and other measures to protect the information on your laptop is highly recommended, and is the sole responsibility of the laptop users. The library is not responsible for any loss of information or damage to your laptop that might result from using the wireless network or other facilities of the library.
