  dpbayly 10:28 27 May 09

hi all i have been for the past few years connecting to the library internet for free as they transmit 24/7 for free access and i live opposit the building any way my wirless dongle thing packed up the other day so i brought a new one uninstalled the old bt one and installed the new sitecom one with bult in 3db gain to improve my signal any way i do the search and find the network with ok signal (better than i used to get) and then try and connect its an open network so no codes to type in it says acquiring network address and thats it never connects never had this problem before it used to some times disconnect and reconnect straight away due to low signal which is why i got a better dongle but it always connected if anyone has any ideas i would be very greatfull
Thanks Darren

Ask the library if it has changed wireless internet routers. If it has, your PC hasn't picked up on the new IP settings. Try clicking below to go to the router setup page.

If this works please tell me

If not, take a screenshot of the page and email it to me @

Thanks, hope it works

Not a good idea to post your email address on the forum for the world to see - stand by for an invasion of spam. You should invite people to email you via the yellow envelope by your name.

As a member of the library service I'd be interested to know which library offers you this service.
