Pop-Up Blocker Settings

Almost all web browsers now (i.e. Internet Explorer, Firefox, Safari, etc.) have a tool built in to turn "pop-ups" or unwanted text windows on or off. This setting is usually helps users enjoy their online experience by preventing pesky unwanted windows.

In order to use the LCC wireless network properly, your pop-up blocker must be set to accept pop-ups from the LEE wireless network. If your browser does not accept pop-ups from the wireless network, you will be unable to log off your current session.

Below are a few instructions to enable pop-up windows for the wireless network:

Internet Explorer 6/7/8:

  • Windows: Go to menu item Tools / Internet Options / Privacy / Pop-up Blocker / Enable the option for "Block pop-ups". Go to "Pop-up Blocker Settings". Type in "aruba-master.leeward.hawaii.edu", click on "Add".

Firefox 2.0 for Mac or Windows:

  • Windows: Go to the menu item Tools / Options / Content. Check off "Block Pop-up Windows", but click on "Allowed Sites" for that option and follow the instructions to add "aruba-master.leeward.hawaii.edu" as "allowed sites".
  • Mac: Go to the Firefox menu (to the right of the Apple menu) and select Preferences. Click on 'Content', then check the box for "Block Pop-up Windows". Click on "Exceptions". Follow the instructions to add "aruba-master.leeward.hawaii.edu" as "allowed sites".

Firefox 3.0 and up for Mac or Windows:

  • Windows: Go to the menu item Tools / Options / Content. Check off "Block Pop-up Windows", but click on "Exceptions" for that option and follow the instructions to add "aruba-master.leeward.hawaii.edu" as "allowed sites".

Safari for Mac:

  • Go to the Safari menu (to the right of the Apple menu). Select "Block Pop-Up Windows" to uncheck and disable the pop-up blocker. Note: Safari doesn't have a way to add site exceptions so the pop-up blocker is either on or off.
