The library utilizes Ruckus Wireless Zoneflex devices to connect to our public network. This device is compatible with 802.11b & 802.11g standards. The security you enjoy on our public network will also protect your wireless connection. However, data transfers between your laptop or PDA and the WAP are insecure. We suggest you install or implement the native firewall in Windows XP/Vista or some other third party program to insure secure communication and data transfer. The library bears no responsibility for presumed hacking or personal security breaches. Use of the wireless network is at your risk.
