Is technical support available?
Because laptops vary so greatly (Windows vs. Mac, etc.), Golden Rain Foundation staff are not available to offer technical assistance with establishing a wireless connection from your computer. They are not allowed to handle any of your equipment.
You are responsible for setting up your own equipment. If you are not familiar with computers or networking, we recommend bringing someone with you who can help you configure your laptop.
Golden Rain Foundation is not responsible for any changes that you make to your computer’s settings and cannot guarantee that your hardware will work with our wireless connection.
How long does a connection last?
Your wireless connection should remain connected until you shut down your computer or WiFi. There is no time limit or maximum length of time that you may use the WiFi network. We recommend that users read their PC and/or Wireless manuals thoroughly.
What factors can influence my connection speed and signal strength?
Many things can affect the Wireless connection speed that Windows detects as well as the customer’s perceived bandwidth. There are various wireless network card standards (A, B, G, etc.) Each of those standards offers different connection speeds and different range capabilities. The signal strength can be affected by the distance to the Wireless Access Point, the number of walls separating the laptop from the Access Point, and other environmental variables. Additionally, older computers (3+ years old) can have difficulty processing today’s robust Internet quickly.
