Using Wireless Internet Access at RML
- In order to access our wireless network, you must have a laptop or wireless device equipped with a wireless network interface card, which meets the IEEE 802.11b, 802.11g or Atheros Super G standards.
- Our wireless network is called RML. It is set to broadcast its name, or SSID. Your laptop should see this network and log on if it is set to connect automatically.
- If you are not set to automatically connect, or you do not see this network, open your wireless connection software and look for a network named RML and select it.
- Remember, if you change your network settings to access our wi-fi network, make sure you record your previous settings, so you can change them back when you leave the library.
- To access the Internet, your network connection needs to be set to get an IP address and a DNS server address automatically. If your personal Internet service provider does not do this, you will need to change your settings. Settings are found in the Network control panel in Windows, in the TCP/IP control panel in Mac OS 9 or earlier, and in the Network panel of the System Preferences in Mac OS X.
- Library staff cannot assist you in making changes to your computer. If you are not comfortable making these changes, you should not use the service.
- Printers are not available via the wireless network. If you need to print, save your information to a disc and print from one of our public computers.
- This wi-fi connection is not secure. Users do so at their own risk. You should use caution when transmitting any personal information; any information you send or receive could by intercepted by another user.
