Do you have a two-tiered network - one for admin/staff; one for in-house
patron use (filtered) and then another for wireless (unfiltered or
Do you have all staff/some staff trained in assisting patrons to setup their
wireless PCs for the network? Do you loan out equipment (laptops) to
patrons in-house; if so, how many units (fee/free.)
If unfiltered access and patrons are using their own PCs - how do you deal
with patron's accessing objectionable (don't read pornographic, necessarily
here) sites using their own equipment, albiet in a public building? Anyone
willing to share their policy with me?
Any recommendations regarding equipment? Working in a concrete/steel
building with lots of walls/floors - probably 802.11g is best? Where do you
position your sending unit(s) for optimal reception?
How do you handle troubleshooting? Viruses/spyware, downloaded computer
programs, etc. - any differently from your wired network - esp. because
these are patron's PCs?
Any other relevent information would be appreciated?
