SETTING UP A WIRELESS CONNECTION

Network Name  is--------------------      WIRED or wired mac or pc 1

NETWORK authentication is-----       Open

Data Encryption is-------------------       Disabled

Usually your wireless laptop will find the cafe's hotspot network with no problem, (ESPECIALLY IF YOU ARE USING WINDOWS 7) however, if you are using some OTHER wireless utility (or mac) other than windows utility,  you must open that utility and indicate (wired) as the network you wish to work with.  Sometimes after you change to wired you  must wait 5 minutes or reboot (with some older machines).

IF YOU ARE INSTALLING A WIRELESS CARD, FOLLOW THE INSTRUCTIONS INCLUDED WITH YOUR CARD AND USE THE ABOVE NETWORK NAME AND AUTHENTICATION / ENCRYPTION INSTRUCTIONS

ME, 98 , 2000,  XP, is REALLY bad,  get vista or 7 AND YOU WILL BE FOREVER HAPPIER

NETWORK CONNECTION

If you open your network connections and see a peer to peer set up, this must be deleted to make your machine work. 

If you see in your network connection a network bridge this also usually must be deleted to make your  machine work.

If you see a wireless connection in your network connections but it is disabled you must enable it.

Some machines have an on and off switch on  the side or top of machine that must be turned on.

IF ALL THE ABOVE DOESN'T WORK

REBOOT

PRINTING  is a offered  service, however, the barista may not be able to  assist until no  counter customer require attention.  We have  brothers printers.   Again printers are a  service but the barista may not be able to assist.

everything you  print will be charged.  (so be careful not to double click.)

the following is actually very easy even though it looks hard.  Be patient and walk yourself thru the process.

short version

is email document to yourself on msn hotmail or yahoo or online mail server that you use and rent one of our desktops and print.

step  1

If  you want to print from your laptop on a windows machine or mac.

Done

now you can print

 

SENDING EMAIL VIA YOUR OWN MAIL PROGRAM

You must reconfigure your smtp outgoing mail server.

open (for example) Outlook.

  • go to tools on tool bar.

  • open accounts.

  • open servers

  • find smtp outgoing mail

  • replace your outgoing server with          mail.wiredcoffeeshop.com

only change outgoing mail address

the incoming address remains the same.

be  sure and write down your old smtp outgoing  mail address so you  don't  forget it.

remember when you leave wired you must change you outgoing mail server  back to you old address.

Configure Your Software for Wireless Networking


Vista, windows 7,  or Mac is very easy just turn them on and they usually find everything on there own. (just give them some time to find it (especially Mac))

xp is harder

Wireless Configuration for Windows XP 

 

802.11g  technology enables computers equipped with Wireless LAN cards to join a wireless network.  Follow these steps to configure your PC with Windows XP to use its wireless card. You may use the links below to jump directly to a particular step in the setup process.


Verify that the Wireless hardware is working

Device Manager window

Open the "Computer Management" administrative tool. It can be found by pressing the "Start" button, selecting "Settings" and clicking on "Control Panel". Double-click on "Administrative Tools", and then on "Computer Management". At left, click once on "Device Manager". At right, click the "+" next to "My Computer" to expand a list of device categories. Click the "+" next to the "Network Adapters" category. Your adapter should be listed, and there should not be a yellow exclamation point or a red "x" next to it. Absence of these marks indicates that the adapter is properly installed with the correct drivers and that there are no conflicts. If there is a yellow or red problem indicator on the adapter's icon, you may have to look at your device guide to troubleshoot the problems or call the Technology Helpline.


Verify that your Wireless card is registered with DHCP

Generally speaking, you will not need to register your card for DHCP. Instead, order for you to access the internet from your wireless card, you will first have to authenticate via a web page. This page will automatically launch if you have not authenticated. However, there may be some locations that still use the DHCP method for determining whether or not you are able to access the internet.


Configure TCP/IP to use your Wireless connection

The TCP/IP protocol is used to connect your computer to the Internet.  The ethernet install instructions should have guided you through the installation and configuration of TCP/IP for your operating system. You may wish to refer to those instructions again. Make sure you set the card up to use DHCP.


Configure Wireless Card to use Infrastructure

Windows XP has changed much of how a connection is made. This is true whether it is a wireless connection or any other connection. This change has made it somewhat simpler to access the wireless network. However, for those unfamiliar with this new way of doing things, configuring the wireless card can be a bit troublesome. The first thing you will need to find is the "Properties" of your "Network Connections" The simplest way to get to this location is to right click on the "My Network Places" icon and select properties.

Network Connections window, with Wireless Network Connection icon selected

You may notice that there is an "X" next to your wireless connection. This is expected. It shows that your wireless card is properly installed, but you have not as yet connected to a wireless network. You need to right click on the wireless network icon, and select "View Available Wireless Networks"

Network Connections window, Wireless Network Connection icon right-clicked (or context-clicked) and View Available Wireless Networks option selected

You should see a list of available wireless networks. If you do not see "Wireless" then you need to get into range of a Wireless Access Point such as one by wired.

Wireless Network Connection, connection window, 'Allow me to connect...' checkbox not activated, thus 'Connect' button not available

THE AVAILABLE WIRELESS NETWORK WILL SAY WIRED or wired/mac/pc

In some instances, you may be using "Wire Equivalent Privacy" or WEP in some special cases. The wired infrastructure does not implement WEP, thus you will be informed that the wireless connection is not secure. If you select "Allow me to connect..." you will then be connected to the WIRED's wireless system.

Wireless Network Connection, connection window, 'Allow me to connect...' checkbox activated, 'Connect' button now available

THE AVAILABLE WIRELESS NETWORK WILL SAY WIRED or wired/mac/pc

It may do some things, but an icon in the lower right hand corner of your desktop should eventually appear stating that you are connected.

Callout bubble that appears from Wireless Network Connection icon in Notification Area (System Tray) when connection becomes active, indicating signal strength

THE AVAILABLE WIRELESS NETWORK WILL SAY WIRED or wired/mac/pc

You are now ready to authenticate to the Wireless system. If you have set your connection up for DHCP, you should be able to browse the internet at any wireless areas.


Test your Wireless connection

To test the TCP/IP protocol, open your web browser (Internet Explorer or Netscape).  You should see the wireless authentication page come up.  If not, verify that your wireless card is working properly. (See the first step in this document).

 

NOTE: Even if you are planning on using another internet resource or other service, you will still need to launch a web browser first and authenticate. After authentication, you will be able to access those other internet programs as you would normally.

If you have other Networking cards, you may want to remove them. The system will try to use all Network cards bound to TCP/IP. If a network card exists, but isn't attached to the network, it may try using that card to access the Internet.

You can type "ipconfig /Release" and "ipconfig /Renew" at a command window on Windows XP machines. This will attempt to communicate to the DHCP server. If an IP address is available, you will be assigned one quickly. If not, then the AP may be having problems, and you should try another location. If it works at another location,
