RSA Library Wireless Upgrade

We are pleased to announce that the RSA Library has recently completed an upgrade to the Wireless Connection it provides for the use of RSA Fellows.

This upgrade has been designed to enable Fellows to far more quickly and efficiently gain access to the internet through their own laptops when visiting the library. The need for Fellows to change the settings on their own computers has been greatly reduced, web based services that may have previously blocked will now be available, and Fellows with a VPN (Virtual Private Network) set up will now have uninterrupted access to their non web-based email (Outlook, etc.).

In order to continually protect the security of the Library's wireless connection, we have decided to retain the username and password operated system that we have run up to now. When you initially open up the web browser of your choice, you will immediately be presented with the screen opposite:

If you have any questions or concerns regarding these changes to the library's wireless connection, please do get in contact with us.

Like the entire RSA House, the Library will be closed for the Bank Holiday on Monday 7 May.

This is fantastic news, although perhaps a mixed blessing to be able to receive work email in what previously was a very productive setting ;-)

It would also be useful for Fellows to turn the sound off of their laptops before they start them up! I am myself not innocent of this and have been embarassed a number of times by the horroble Windows ;'ditty' ringing out.
