Go Wireless with WiFi Service from Cox Communications.

Getting Started

To get started, you need a wireless device with a wireless network adapter to automatically detect and connect to available networks while you're on the road, at the office or at home.

In order to connect to Cox WiFi Service, you must have a properly installed 802.11b or 802.11g wireless network card or an Intel Centrino WiFi laptop, a properly installed TCP/IP Stack, and a web browser.

In addition, computers connected to
Cox WiFi Service must meet Cox High Speed Internet  minimum requirements.
For browser based authentication, you must configure your WiFi 802.11b or 802.11g enabled laptop to access the
Cox WiFi Service network. By setting the SSID (or service set identifier) in your wireless device to CoxWiFi, your device can synchronize to the Cox WiFi Service network.

Your existing laptop or handheld may already have WiFi 802.11b or  802.11g wireless capability built-in. If not, you can purchase one for most laptops and many PDAs direct from the manufacturer.
