Troubleshooting FAQ

Q1: I see a warning message about certificates when I open my browser, what should I do?

A1: This message is generated by Internet Explorer to warn you that the security certificate being presented by our hotspot is not from a known certificate agency - that is OK.

Q2: I can't see the Library Guest network, what should I do?

A2: If you can see other networks when you are at the library but Library Guest doesn't appear please report this to staff at the Information Desk. If you can't see any networks try repairing your wireless adapter by right-clicking the WiFi icon in the Systray and clicking "Repair".

Q3: Why can I access the WiFi network in some parts of the library but not others?

A3: Wireless Internet uses radio waves to send signals between devices on the network; these signals can be obstructed or absorbed by certain materials such as metal or concrete. Also, your wireless card may not have enough range to associate with the access point from every corner of the building. We have two access points, one at each end of the library to try and solve this problem.
