Get connected at your local library
Broadband and Wireless access is now available at all branches of Dublin City Public Libraries.
Broadband enables information and data to be sent and received at fast speeds to and from your personal computer or laptop. Broadband is a more reliable and robust way of connecting to the Internet than using a dial-up service (i.e. ordinary telephone line).
It's called broadband because it has a much larger capacity to receive and send data.
The term wireless refers to technology that enables two or more computers to communicate without network cabling (sometimes called wireless LANS).
Most new laptops are wireless enabled, that is with wireless cards built. If you are unsure check with your supplier.
If your laptop does not have a wireless card you can purchase one from any computer accessories retailer.
For instructions on how to check if your laptop has an internal wireless card, download the following guide:
