Hardware Requirements

  • Any device that is Wi-Fi enabled.
  • Your computer must have an 802.11a, 802.11b, or 802.11 g-based Ethernet device installed.

Software Requirements

  • Use a web browser, such as Chrome, Firefox, Safari, or Opera.
  • Set your TCP client software to obtain addresses automatically from a server (DHCP).
  • Configure TCP/IP software by opening the Network Connections icon in the Control Panel. Right-click on Wireless connection and choose Properties. Under Protocol settings, select TCP/IP. Set the IP address to obtain an IP address automatically. Leave all other fields blank. Restart the device for the changes to take effect.


  • If the login page states that you are already logged in, but you cannot surf to different web pages, try navigating to publicnetwork.haynerlibrary.org and clicking on the “End My Session” button in the address bar and try logging in again. If this does not work, please ask a library staff member for assistance; your computer may be in quarantine and blocked.
  • Some pop-up blockers will foil the login process. You should temporarily disable all pop-up blockers or add to allow pop-ups before logging in.
  • For bandwidth considerations, peer-to-peer networking software (P2P) is not allowed on the Wi-Fi network. If connected to P2P programs, our software will detect it, disconnect you from the wireless network, and place your MAC address into “quarantine,” where it will be blocked until unblocked by an administrator. Be sure to turn this software off before connecting to the Wi-Fi network. If you are in quarantine, please turn off your P2P software and let a staff member know that you were disconnected. The staff member will call the IT department and they can remove you from quarantine. Please note that IT is available Monday-Friday from 8:30 a.m. to 5:00 p.m.
