Use the Wireless Network

What equipment do I need to access the wireless network?

To use the wireless network in the library, your laptop or mobile device must be equipped with a standard Internet browser and Wi-Fi capabilities.

How do I connect My Personal Mobile Device to the wireless network (Wi-Fi)?

Wi-Fi networks

LSC students, faculty, and staff: Connect to LoneStar and login using your LSC username and password.

Public library patrons and University Center students, faculty, and staff: Connect to LoneStar using your 14-digit library card number as your username and PIN as your password.

All other visitors (contractors, vendors, or visitors who are attending conferences or giving presentations): You must be registered as a visitor in order to access the LoneStar-Visitor network.

May I borrow a laptop computer for use in the library?

Laptops which are fully configured for the wireless network may be available for checkout from the circulation desk, depending on campus. Please refer to the Borrow a Laptop Computer guidelines.

Is the wireless network secure?

The LSC wireless network is as secure as any open public access network. It is always a good idea to make sure you are on an SSL-encrypted web page prior to sending or receiving confidential data.

can I print from a Laptop?

If you are using your personal or library laptop to access our wireless network, you will not be able to print on the library printers. You can save your work to a portable USB flash drive or attach a file to an email message you can access and use a library desktop computer to print to the library network printers.
