Common Problems with Wireless Access

AOL - America Online

America Online is an Online Service Provider with available connections to the Internet. The AOL Web Browser is incompatible with the Library web server.  Solution - AOL usually installs a copy of Internet Explorer with its own software. Launch AOL, minimize their browser and start Internet Explorer. This should allow regular access.

Advantages of wireless include mobility and elimination of unsightly cables. Disadvantages of wireless is that it is not like using a lab computer, only Internet is supported. Students may check their email from a browser at http://www.limestone.edu.  For additional support, students may contact Student Services or email the Limestone Help Desk at helpdesk@limestone.edu This e-mail address is being protected from spambots.
