ACBL Unit 503


Internet

We connect to the internet using Google's free GoogleWifi system. Our service is pretty reliable but does, on occasion, have problems.

If you get a message asking you to log onto GoogleWifi use the username and password posted at the Director's desk.

If you are unable to connect to the internet try the following check to see if you can connect to the internet from both the Director's computer and the dealing machine computer. Use the steps below depending on which computer(s) are not connecting:

Director's Computer Connects. Dealing Machine computer does not connect.

  • Restart the Dealing Machine computer.
  • Connect to Bridge Center. The computer will normally connect automatically but it is possible you will have to use Network Preferences to connect to Bridge Center.
  • Reset the router (under the director's desk). Turn the power off, wait two minutes and then turn the power on again.
  • If you are still unable to connect notify the person(s) resposible for the Bridge Center computer equipment (see Governance).

Director's computer does not connect.

To report a problem with Google's service call 650 450-8491. Google will not answer the call but they do monitor it for problems. Please do not call Google unless you have tried the steps, above.
