Update on the Library’s Wireless Problem

Date Posted: May 7, 2013

Thanks to everyone who responded to the WiFi questionnaire. An entirely new set of routers and cabling will be installed by IT over summer 2013. This should go a long way in resolving many of the dead space problems that have interfered with WiFi coverage in the library.

It was also discovered that the most recent slowness was a result of  “address pool depletion” on the network.

Adjustments have been made and WiFi coverage should improve immediately.
