Basic Guidelines

  • To use the LMLS wireless network you must abide by the LMLS Internet Acceptable Use Policy.
  • You can connect to our network with your wireless device using 802.11b, g or n wireless cards.

  • LMLS filters wireless Internet access in compliance with federal CIPA requirements. Unfiltered wireless access is not currently available.*
  • Wireless access is available during library hours only.

LMLS Wireless Configuration & Network Settings

  • Access to the LMLS Stop and Go wireless network no longer requires WEP Security.  This means that your default wireless connection settings should allow you to connect to “Stop and Go“.  The first time you visit you will need to “View Available Wireless Networks” and then Connect to “Stop and Go“.
  • Configure your wireless network connection so that Internet Protocol (TCP/IP) is set to “DHCP enabled” or “Obtain an IP address automatically.” This is a default configuration and may already be done for you.
  • DNS settings should be “Obtain a DNS address automatically”. This is also a default configuration and may already be done for you.
  • In your web browser it is essential that you set the Local Area Network [LAN] settings to “Automatically detect settings.”
  • It may be necessary to disable your personal firewall.

Configuring Your Wireless Device

Your wireless connection must be set up to dynamically acquire an address on a TCP/IP network, i.e. use DHCP. The following are general guidelines for verifying that DHCP is enabled on your wireless connection device (card). Your system may vary from the steps noted. Refer to your computer”s HELP feature and search for the term “wireless” and/or “Network Connection” for instructions specific to your equipment and operating system.

Macintosh OS 8 & 9
  1. Go to Apple Menu, Control Panel, TCP/IP.
  2. Connect via “Airport” (or other WiFi Ethernet)
  3. Configure “Using DHCP Server”
  4. Leave Name Server and Additional Search domains blank.

Frequently Asked Questions.

Question:  Why can’t I see the wireless network at all, my computer does not detect it?

Answer:  Make sure the wireless adapter is enabled.  Go to Programs-Settings-Control Panel and open Network Connections Looking for the “Wireless Network Connection”.  Some laptops have a hardware on/off switch for the wireless adapter on the laptop.  Example, Toshiba Laptops have a wireless switch along the edge (front or sides) of the keyboard portion of the laptop.  There will be an LED indicator with a wireless symbol near the switch.  Check to see if a switch exists and that the card is not switched off.  The symbol on the hardware for the wireless card may look like an antenna with waves coming out of the left and right side, such as (((¡))).

Manual Proxy Server Setting – If you still have trouble, especially with browsers other than IE, it may help to manually set the proxy server, rather than have it do the automatic detection of settings.  In the browser “Tools” menu, or something similar, set the proxy server address to “filter.lmls.org” and set the port to 8080.

NOTE:  When you are finished using the LMLS wireless network make sure you remove the manual proxy server setting.  Either change the setting to “Auto-detect” (if available) or “direct connect to Internet”.  You must de-select the option for using a specific proxy server or you will not be able to browse on the Internet in another network.

Question:  I have a poor signal and cannot connect, but I usually have no problem.

Answer:  If you are usually connected to the Stop and Go network in a different part of the building it could be that your wireless connection is not transitioning to the closest wireless access point.  Right click on the wireless icon in the system tray of your computer (Bottom right hand corner).  Select Repair from the list of menu options.  You will see the connection reinitialize and the connection should now associate itself with the nearest access point.
