How to Access the Lake-Sumter Wireless Network

Wireless internet access is currently available on the South Lake (see South Lake coverage map), Leesburg (see Leesburg coverage map) and Sumter campuses (see Sumter coverage map).

The LakerNet wireless network is designed for public access web browsing. All wireless devices should pick up the LakerNet network because the SSID (service set identifier, or network name) is being broadcast.

Only http and https protocols are supported. FTP and instant messaging are not available via the wireless network.

The following instructions show how to connect a Windows XP-based laptop computer to the wireless network. Depending on the specific configuration of your computer, the steps you take may be slightly different.

Many computers will automatically connect to the LakerNet. If your computer does not, access its wireless connections by double-clicking on the wireless connection icon in the system tray at the bottom of the desktop:
