Patrons have the option of connecting wireless devices to either an encrypted or non-encrypted Wi-Fi internet connection for wireless devices at each branch.

Unencryped Connection
The unencrypted network connection at NOLS should appear as an available wireless network with the following SSID: NOLSpub

Access your device’s Wi-Fi configuration tool or menu and select NOLSpub from the list of available wireless networks. This connection is easy to set up, but is less secure. Be aware that that your network activities such as catalog searches or web browsing are effectively viewable by other users using the NOLSpub connection.

Encrypted Connection
The encrypted network connection should appear as an available wireless network with the following SSID: NOLSwpa

Access your device’s Wi-Fi configuration tool or menu and select NOLSwpa from the list of available wireless networks.

Ask a staff member for the password to the NOLSWPA network in order to gain access.
