Closet Wireless: A Proposed Solution
Written by Bwog Staff
The tomb, also known as Butler, is not conducive to the strong, speedy wireless that’s oh-so-helpful for Procrastination Week. So, for midterms, we marched around with our laptop trying to determine where the best signal would be.
Signal strength is arbitrary (who knew?), so for finals we have taken it a step further. Bwog contacted CUIT to find out where, exactly, they’re hiding all those wireless access points. They weren’t very helpful: “Although it is policy to not publish specific locations of any infrastructure equipment, CUIT and the Libraries work together to make connecting to the wireless network as seamless as possible.”
Hand-holding fun aside, we decided to march through Butler one last time and mark down the locations of every wireless access point we could find in reading rooms. These diagrams even include access points that are hidden behind panels.
The red dots indicate access points whose locations were visibly confirmed. The blue dots indicate suspected locations of access points, which were located by means of brilliant logic and magical software, be they in humming closets or hidden behind wall panels.
