WifiYou may use the library's wireless network on your device at any branch location.

In order to use the library's wireless network:
  1. You must have a laptop/notebook computer, smartphone, tablet or internet capable device with a wireless network card which has been properly installed according to the manufacturer’s instructions. If you have a Mac, you can use this service with an installed AirPort card or other 802.11 (a/b/g/n/ac) compatible wireless card and software.
  2. Configuration settings should match these values:
    • Network Name, or SSID = library-ap or TCCL-PUBLIC
    • Network Mode = infrastructure
    • WEP = disabled
    • IP or Network Settings = DHCP enabled, or obtain an IP address automatically
    • DNS = obtain DNS address automatically
    • Gateway = no default gateway (your card should detect it automatically)
  3. Save any modified settings and restart your device as required.
  4. To connect, open your “Wireless Network Connection” by clicking the icon in the system tray.
  5. Choose “View Wireless Networks.”
  6. You should see an entry for library-ap or TCCL-PUBLIC. (If you do not see it, click on “Refresh.”)
  7. Select it and click the “Connect” button.

[Note: Although you may see other entries, only library-ap or TCCL-PUBLIC is being provided by the library and is the only one you are authorized to access. Connection to wireless networks for which you are not authorized may be subject to legal action.]

You now have a live Internet connection. Open your browser; you will be directed to a page with our wireless policy by which we expect users to abide while using our connection. From there, you may surf to other web sites.

Once you leave the library and are out of range of our wi-fi, you will automatically be disconnected from our network. If you prefer, when you are finished using the access, you can return to your “Wireless Network Connection” dialog box and click on “Disconnect.”

You may also print while using the library's wireless internet.
