We offer free WI-FI at the library. A patron called and asked if they could access the WI-FI from their home.
Wireless networks for computing, such as Wi-Fi, are isolated and limited to a radius of around 50 to 100 feet.
This limitation is quickly being overcome, however, with the advent of broadband (high bandwidth) wireless networks, such as WiMAX. Check out Gale’s Student Resources in Context for more information on upcoming technologies.
