Windows users:

  • Please ensure that your surname is typed in lower case.
  • Try refreshing your adapter by going into Control Panel > System > Device Manager > Network Adapters and disable your wireless adapter. Leave a moment and then enable – this refreshes your adapter settings.
  • Every now and again – although it is rare – the network might not be available due to technical problems. If this happens and the service is temporarily unavailable, please be patient as the service should soon resume.

 

Apple users:

  • Some Snow Leopard users have reported problems logging on to wifi with Airport: this is resolved by restarting Airport or restarting the device.

Eduroam:

You may also connect to the wireless network using the Eduroam service if your home institution is a member. You must set this up before coming to the Library as staff are not able to assist with setting up authentication to your home institution.
