Troubleshooting

Please note that depending on your version of software, there may be variations in the procedures.

If you experience problems establishing a wireless connection, you may want to check the following settings.  The Lyon Township Public Library is not responsible for any changes that you make to your computer’s settings and cannot guarantee that your hardware will work with our wireless connection.

  • Check to see if you have power management enabled on your wireless adapter.  This may cause your laptop to turn off your wireless adapter after a period of inactivity to save power.
  • Check to see if you have Windows Firewall or another firewall product enabled.  These products may prevent your computer from connecting to our wireless network.
  • If you also have a dial-up connection, check to see if your computer is set to “Always dial my default connection”.  This may prevent you from connecting to our wireless network.
  • LAN Settings should be set to “Automatically detect settings” and do not select a proxy server.
