Q: Do you have wireless internet access?
Yes! Both the Gillette and Wright libraries offer wireless access. The library provides and maintains this wireless network as a public service. You are responsible for knowing how to configure your own equipment. Library staff cannot assist in setting up portable computers or other wireless devices to work with the wireless network and no guarantee is made that you will be able to make a wireless connection.
We have tried to make wireless access as available as possible in our libraries, but you may encounter some "dead" spots in the library where wireless reception may be limited. If you have trouble accessing the Internet or staying online please move to a different location within the library.
Access to the wireless network is on a first-come first-served basis. During high-use periods, access may be slow or unavailable. The wireless Internet access we offer is filtered. By choosing to use this free service, you agree to abide by our Internet Responsible Use Policy.
