To make sure connecting is as easy as possible, here are some tips:

  • Make sure your wireless adapter is on. Some adapters have switches on the outside of the laptop, some are turned on by pressing buttons on the keyboard.
  • Make sure the network settings are set to obtain the IP address and DNS server automatically.
  • If you have encryption enabled, turn that off.
  • Our wireless network, like most wireless networks, is not a secure connection. Make sure there are no check boxes selected that only allow you to use a secure connection
