As a service to our patients and visitors, Chester County Hospital provides free wireless Internet access (Wi-Fi).
The guest wireless network is named 'GuestWiFi' and is accessible without a password.
What do I need?
A Wi-Fi (802.11b/g) enabled device that has been certified for compliance with the Wi-Fi wireless LAN standard (IEE 802.11b) is required.
How do I connect?
Connecting is simple: Just turn on your wireless device, select "GuestWiFi" from the available wireless networks and open your Internet browser. You will be redirected to "Chester County Hospital" splash page where you must agree to the terms of service and click the "Accept" button to initiate the connection to the "GuestWiFi" network.
Will my company's VPN work over the "GuestWiFi" wireless network?
Most Virtual Private Network (VPN) software running on a notebook computer configured for DHCP is compatible with the "GuestWiFi" network. If your company allows remote access into their corporate network, then you may connect. If your company has a VPN, you should be able to run your VPN or secure tunneling client software over the "GuestWiFi" wireless connection.
