Wireless Internet Access

The Medical Center’s wireless network is accessible throughout the Library. Medical students and Physician Assistant students have WFBMC-issued laptops, and logging on with their MEDCTR username and password should get them on the Academic network. They should contact the Academic Computing Lab on the E-Floor with problems accessing the network.

All non-WFBMC-issued devices (including Graduate students and Reynolda campus students) will need to use the Guest Network. The Guest Network is not secure - do not transmit confidential information via the guest network. The Guest Network does not have access to printers; users will need to transfer their work to Library computers to print.

Guest Network Users need to click Accept on the Terms of Service Screen before they will be able to access any network/internet resources:

Security Considerations

Anyone using the WFBMC wireless network is forewarned that there can be no expectation of privacy when using the wireless network. Users assume all associated risks and agree to hold harmless WFBMC and its employees for any personal information (e.g. credit card) that is compromised, or for any damage caused to users' hardware or software due to the electric surges, security issues or consequences caused by viruses or hacking. All wireless access users should have up-to-date virus protection on their personal laptop computers or wireless devices, as well as staying up-to-date with applicable OS security patches.
