If you have a Huntsville City Schools laptop, you must use Function key 8 to turn on the Wireless.

  1. Hold down the FN (function) key, and then press F8.
  2. A box should appear telling you that the Wireless function is off.
  3. While continuing to hold down the FN button, press F8 again. This should toggle Wireless to "on."
  4. Give your laptop a few seconds to boot up the Wireless. Click on the network button in the bottom right-hand toolbar and select "LibraryNet" from the list of available networks.
  5. After a few seconds, go to an Internet browser and type in a web address.
