Patients and visitors in the hospital can now get directly to the Internet through wireless access. Access is available on all floors, including the waiting areas, meeting rooms and patient rooms. The service is provided without charge. Patients and visitors can use a properly configured laptop that is wireless compatible and able to connect to the Web. The hospital suggests using a computer running one of the newer versions of Windows operating systems.
In order to connect to the wireless service your computer must meet the following requirements:
Your device must have a compatible wireless card (802.11b) installed in the computer or other device.
Your wireless card should be configured to obtain an IP address automatically (DHCP-enabled) and have all encryption protocols disabled (WEP, LEAP, PEAP, etc.).
Virtual private network (VPN) connections can be established using most client software (PPTP); however, the hospital cannot guarantee all of them to work.
The hospital highly recommends that you employ standard computing safety measures. The hospital does not filter, scan, monitor or block any traffic through this Internet connection. Standard safety measures include, but are not limited to, employing personal antivirus software with updated signature files, using a personal firewall program, and staying current on all applicable updated security patches or fixes for your operating system and browser software.
Users assume all responsibility for employing this service.
