Wireless Project - Using Your Own Laptop
Using Your Own Laptop on the Wireless Network
Western's students and faculty are encouraged to add a wireless networking card to their own PC or Mac. As the campus wireless network expands you will find the convenience and easy use it brings will make this modest investment worthwhile.
A number of wireless network cards have been tested for use with a variety of laptop computers. For a listing of tested wireless cards and information about using your own computer on the network pickup an information sheet for your PC or Mac at the Wilson Circulation Desk or contact the ATUS Help Desk at 650-3333.
Network Cables for Your Laptop
Data cables which can be used at a limited number of locations in Haggard Hall to plug your laptop into a data jack can be checked out at the Main Circulation Desk on Haggard 2. Users will need a valid Western Card. These cables provide your laptop with fast reliable access to all of the resources you expect to find on the typical public access computer in the library - as well as access to the internet. Users are expected to adhere to the guidelines spelled out in the university's Policy for Responsible Computing.
