Wireless bridges and the future lds accout login requirement

Postby ulupoi » Wed Feb 27, 2013 5:59 pm

I've heard that the church will soon require lds account information in order to connect to the meetinghouse wireless network. When and if this occurs, will we be able to obtain dummy accounts to use with devices such as wireless bridges?

In one of our buildings, there are a couple of computers connected to the local network to use in training people to do family history stuff. Many of our members don't have computers. Also, many don't have cars, which makes it difficult for them to get to our nice, big, official family history center on the other side of town. This makes it particularly useful to have family-history-dedicated computers at their ward building. At present, they are connected to the local network using wireless adapters because they LDSAccess signal is very strong in that room, but running a cable to the room would be difficult. Also, the building power circuits are laid out in such a way that using powerline Ethernet adapters would be difficult.

Also, we occasionally have visitors who need wireless access. For example, we host an annual African-American family history symposium, and some of the non-LDS teachers need access. Will we be able to obtain guest accounts to meet this need?

Thank you.

The church dropped those plans. (At least for now.)
