What modem speeds does the WCNet support?
WCNet supports modem speeds ranging from 2400 baud to 56k, and ISDN. We
recommend that anything below 2400 baud be upgraded to 33.6 or higher
How do I reach a WCNet Volunteer?
A voice mail message may be left at 354-6013 (local to Bowling Green) or
toll-free 1-877-729-2638. You may also send electronic mail to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Sending e-mail may result in a slightly faster response than leaving voice
mail. In either case a volunteer will contact you to answer your questions
as soon as possible.
Are there any connect time limits?
Connect times are currently limited to 2 hours during prime time hours.
During non-prime time hours and weekends connect times of up to 4 hours
Why are connection times limited to 2 or 4 hours?
This is done because some people would otherwise connect and stay connected
for several hours, even when they aren't using it, and deny other people
access. Many people only use it for a few minutes at a time to check and
send email. It is also done to help control costs.
Can I advertise on a web page?
A business account is needed if you intend to advertise. Please refer to
the Subscription Agreement for further information regarding this question.
Do I need Windows or a Macintosh type interface to access the WCNet?
No. While a graphical interface is highly recommended, the internet can
be accessed by using an older DOS based or Apple computer. You can use any
type of computer with a modem and terminal software to access WCNet. This
type of connection will be a text based interface and will not take advantage
of all the features of a graphical based connection.
How do you get rid of the 'Would you like to disconnect from the Internet?'

Explorer and select Edit + Internet Options).
2. Click the Connection tab; then click Settings.
3. Deselect the Disconnect If Idle for XX Minutes option.
4. Click OK.
Remember: Now you need to disconnect from the Internet manually-for example,
by right-clicking the Dial-up icon in the tray of your Taskbar and selecting
