Using your Laptop
You can use a laptop, but you can’t make a wired connection to the University network. You can connect to the wolfradiolan wireless network if it’s available, but you'll need to start a web browser, wait for it to bring up the Network Authorisation screen, and log in using a University account.
- Select Laptop on the touch screen. You’ll see a message saying ‘Please connect laptop to computer
- Plug your laptop in to the Mains socket on the desk if necessary, then plug the end of the monitor cable on
the lectern to the back of your laptop, (and the audio cable if you need to output sound).
- Apple Mac users may need a converter cable to connect their laptop to the cable on the desk.
- Switch your laptop from its built-in screen to display through the data-projector. Usually done by pressing
the "Fn" key at the bottom of the keyboard and the function key "F5" or “F8” (often with monitor icon on it).
VERY IMPORTANT! Press the Power Off button on the touch screen to close down the projector and the touch screen. After a few seconds, you’ll see the status bar change to Projector is Off.
NOTE: If the Touch Screen is not used for 2 hours, the data projector will turn off automatically.
