Wireless Internet Access

Instructions for Internet Access

Wireless Internet (unsecured network) is available for patients and visitors throughout the Hospital. (Please note our staff does not provide technical support for personal laptop computers.) To access the wireless network, you need a laptop, a WiFi compliant 802.11-b/g wireless Ethernet card, and a standard web browser.

On your laptop, you should see an icon in the system tray (at the bottom right of the screen) that looks like a computer with waves coming from it.

  • Right-click on the icon
  • Left-click on View Available Wireless Networks
  • If MGHGuest network does not appear in a list of networks, left-click on Refresh network list (or left-click on MGHGuest network if it is present)
  • Left-click on Connect
  • Open your Internet web browser
  • Begin using Internet
