About Wi-Fi Access
What is the Austin Memorial Library’s Wi-Fi network?
Our Wi-Fi network allows patrons to use their own wireless devices to connect to the Internet. If your computer is Wi-Fi - compliant (either 802.11b or 802.11g), you can connect to the Internet wirelessly while at our library.
Is there a fee?
No. The library offers Wi-Fi as an information service, free of charge to its patrons, so the service is limited to http/https for surfing the Web. The number of connections available at each location is also limited, so access is strictly on a first-come, first-served basis.
Is the network secure?
Our Wi-Fi access is an open, public-access network. For your protection, you should always make sure that you are on a SSL-encrypted web page before sending or receiving confidential data and you should keep your antivirus software up to date. In most cases, you can tell you are on a secure web age when you see the “https” on the address bar or a lock icon on the task bar.
Can I print from my computer?
Yes. The library has a link on their home page “Wireless Printing”. This link will temporarily download the printer drivers to your computer.
What equipment do I need to access the network?
Your wireless device (laptop, PDA, Blackberry, etc.) must be equipped with a standard Internet browser and a Wi-Fi - compliant (either 802.11b or 802.11g), wireless Ethernet card.
