The county’s Wi-Fi access is as secure as any open public access network, such as dial-up Internet accounts or public telephones. It is always good to use an SSL-encrypted Web page prior to sending or receiving confidential data.
A Wi-Fi compliant (802.11 b/g) device equipped with a standard Internet browser is necessary to access the network.
Both types will work as long as the computer or PDA is equipped with a wireless card and the appropriate software.
Make sure that a wireless card (802.11 b/g) and the appropriate software are installed on the computer or PDA. Open the Web browser and you should see a Citizen Wi-Fi welcome page.
Whenever the network is accessed by a user, a Chesterfield County Wireless Internet Access Acceptable-Use Policy will appear on the screen. The user must read and agree to the terms and conditions of use before accessing the network. Once the user has confirmed acceptance, he or she can access the Internet without passwords, fees or limits.
Here are some things to check if there are problems in accessing the network
