GUIDELINES FOR WIRELESS INTERNET ACCESS

 

Wireless internet access is available at Haysville Community Library free of charge.

 

Users must have a notebook/laptop computer or other wireless device with 802.11b/g wireless networking.  If users are not sure if their notebook/laptop computer or other device has this functionality, they should check the manufacturer or supplier of the equipment.  If the device does not include wireless networking, the user may be able to purchase a variety of external cards or USB devices.  The manufacturer or supplier of the equipment, or local technology merchants, can help to find the right product for the device.

 

Users must log in to the wireless network.  Users IDs and passwords must be obtained from Haysville Community Library Staff before logging on.

 

The Library has tried to make wireless access as available as possible, but users may encounter some “dead” spots in the Library where reception may be limited.  If users have trouble accessing the Internet or staying online, it is suggested that they move to a different location within the Library.

 

The wireless Internet access offered is unfiltered.  By choosing to user this free service, users agree to abide by the Library’s Internet Access Guidelines.  This policy states the limitations of Internet access, user responsibilities for using that access, and provides acceptable and unacceptable uses.  A copy of these Guidelines is available at the desk.

 

The Library’s wireless network is not secured.  Information sent to and from personal notebook/laptop computers and other wireless devices may be captured by anyone else with a wireless device and the appropriate software.

 

Library staff is not able to provide technical assistance and no guarantee can be made that a wireless connection can be made.

 

The Library assumes no responsibility for the safety of equipment or for device configurations, security or data files resulting from connection to the Library’s wireless service.
