Wireless access expanded to more City buildings

With cabling complete, employees and visitors now have wireless access in City Hall, Flour Exchange, Public Service Center, City of Lakes and the newest location, the Crown Roller Mill building.

Individuals with a laptop, iPad, smartphone or tablet can now connect via the new wireless network whenever they’re attending a meeting or visiting another office.

How to access the wireless network

With a City-issued laptop: When you visit any of the City facilities with wireless access, your City-issued laptop will automatically connect to CoMnet — a secure network — as long as you have enabled the wireless switch.

To avoid computer problems, be sure to disable this wireless switch when you return to your workstation and hard wire your laptop to connect to the City network.

With a smartphone or iPad: When you visit any of the City facilities with wireless access, you can connect to CoMnet_guest, an unsecured internet access wireless network.  A splash page will appear when you select this wireless network. You must accept the usage statement before it allows you to use the network.

For more detailed instructions, visit Information Technology’s website.

Wireless coming to additional buildings

The City will be expanding wireless access to the Hiawatha, Currie and Border facilities in 2013; however, completion dates are still pending.
