How to connect

If you have a newer laptop or wireless card, your computer may automatically find the wireless network. If you need to change its settings in order to use Wi-Fi, be sure to set up your computer to use:

Network name or SSID: Sonoma County Library
Wireless Mode or Network Type: Access Point or Infrastructure (not "Ad Hoc")
Network properties: Use DHCP (Obtain an IP address automatically)
WEP: Off
WPA: Off

Once your computer finds the wireless network, and you start your web browser, you will get a login page. You must agree to the terms of service before you can log into the network.

Please ...

Bring your own laptop and wireless card or wireless-enabled device. The Library does not check out wireless cards or PDAs.

Bring a fully charged battery. Public electric outlets may not be available.
