Linebaugh Public Library is now
offering free wireless Internet access to those with a portable computer and
wireless 802.1a or 802.1b/g wireless network adapter. Wireless access is
available throughout the library with the best signal on the second floor.
Access is also available outdoors in the plaza area adjacent to the main
entrance. All wireless users must first obtain a username and password
from the upstairs Reference desk. Due to the variety of
hardware/software configurations, we cannot provide technical support;
however, we do provide some guidance below. For additional help, check your
computer’s documentation, or look under Windows Help.
Connecting to the wireless network from Windows XP:
Go to the start menu, then “settings,” and select “network connections.” Under network connections, right-click the wireless network connection icon and select “view available wireless networks.” Select the network named “Linebaugh Library,” and click the connect button at the bottom of the window. If you are prompted whether you’d like to connect to an “unsecured network,” click “connect anyway.” For more information on our wireless security, please see the section titled “About Security” at the end of this page. Once successfully connected, you should see a status of “Connected” and a yellow star as pictured below.
Please note: Wireless access is not available at our Smyrna or MGL library branches at this time.
