Wireless Access

The Lemont Public Library offers patrons free wireless Internet access. The “hotspot” is called Lemont Library. We currently support A, B, and G standards.

What do I need?

  • A wireless-enabled device (tablet or smartphone) or laptop computer.
  • TCP/IP settings set to “obtain IP address automatically”
  • Since it is a “public” environment you will need to check the radio button for connecting to an unsecured network.
  • The connection is behind a firewall, but please make sure to have updated virus protection for downloads.

What if I do not have a wireless card?
A limited number of “wired” connections are available in the study rooms and north alcove of the library. You will need to have your TCP/IP settings set to “obtain IP address automatically”.
