The city of Gaithersburg encrypted its free wireless network Thursday to enhance security.
Access to the network, which is available at several municipal facilities, will now require a password. Users can obtain a password from the reception staff at City Hall, the Bohrer Activity Center, Casey Community Center, the Gaithersburg Upcounty Senior Center, Kentlands Mansion, the Arts Barn, and the Olde Towne and Robertson Park youth centers.
To access the secure network, users will need to update their wireless devices to include the password. It typically needs to be entered only once, and will then be remembered by the device.
For more information, contact the city’s Information Technology Department at 301-258-6325.
