Furnald, Hartley, Wallach: Now with Wireless?
Written by Bwog Staff
CUIT’s past restriction on wireless routers could be on the way out. Sources tell Bwog that CUIT is planning on lifting its restriction on personal wireless routers in Furnald, Hartley, and Wallach. Instead, it will allow students to purchase an Apple Airport Express or similar types of routers (perhaps based on the current policy offered to residents of Columbia-owned apartments). Residents should hear about the program “within the next few weeks.”
In the past, sources told Bwog, CUIT restricted the routers on the grounds that they put stress on the university network. This new test will look at how allowing routers will affect speed in the building and also on the Quad. So first-years, if you could hold off on downloading the entire IMDB top 250 until after this test finishes, that’d be just dandy.
