Check out the Internet! Mobile Hotspots Available

Mobile Hotspots

Mobile Hotspots are now available and can be checked out from the 1st floor Circulation Desk. A mobile hotspot allows a user to connect to the hotspot and access the internet from their home. No other internet connection/service/access is required, making these hotspots an invaluable tool for those that are struggling with internet access. Simply turn the device on, find the device ID and password, and connect your device to the hotspot to get online. Some things to note about the library’s mobile hotspots:

(T-MOBILE ALCATEL LINKZONE USER GUIDE)

To start the device, hold the Power key for 3 seconds until all LED indicators illuminate in
blue. If the hot spot does not power on, check the battery light to make sure the device is
charged. The light should be blue. Three lights indicate that the hot spot is fully charged.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

*PLEASE NOTE: To ensure that you get the most out of your device, please observe the
following recommendations for using the Alcatel Linkzone hot spot:

 Do not press the WPS key located near the power button. This will log you out of the current
WiFi network.

• Do not press and hold the power button and the WPS button at the same time, as this will cause
your device to restart.

To connect to your mobile hot spot, search for available Wi-Fi networks on your computer or
other Wi-Fi-enabled device and select the device name provided by your library.

Left-click Wireless Network Connection on the taskbar to view available networks.

Choose the device name (provided by your library) from the list of available networks.
