As I wrote in my previous post from December 11th, the coffeehouse will have a new wi-fi policy in place January 15th. Thanks to those who commented and offered suggestions as to how best balance the needs of all our patrons. Also, please remember that we are not targeting individuals - we appreciate those of you who "pay rent" throughout the day, who share their tables, who use only the chairs they need, but we can't expect everyone to be as courteous as you or as aware of the needs of a small business and of the Modern Times/Politics and Prose community.
We're working with our "IT Department" to configure the router. Unfortunately, we can't block bit torrent sites with the router we have. We can, however configure it to not broadcast a signal during certain times. The router will automatically shut off between the hours of 11a - 3p during the weekdays. During the weekends it will remain off until 5p. You will still need to obtain a receipt with purchase to get a passkey to sign into the network.
Thank you again for helping us create a warm, welcoming environment.
