Library Wifi Update September 10, 2023

The networking team in I.T. upgraded the Wi-Fi in the library building this summer. They ran cat6 network cable to all areas requiring the installation of new wireless access points (APs).

An electrical contractor installed conduit in all areas where there is no drop-ceiling requiring network cables to be run in those places.

Stetson I.T. programmed and installed new APs and upgraded the existing older APs, following the recommendations from the wireless survey completed during the Spring semester.

Now that the new APs are installed and working, I.T. will work to refine AP functionality to provide the best wireless experience possible at the library.
