Internet Access in Dorms

Providence Computer Services is aware that WI-FI service in some areas of the residences is not sufficient to meet the growing demand for bandwidth. To address this issue new state-of-the-art equipment has been ordered to replace our current WI-FI access points in the residences and apartments. While we wait for the new equipment to arrive we would like to offer a free network cable to those residents who can plug-in. There is one network jack in each room in Bergen, Eichhorst and most 4-plex units and Kindred has two jacks in each room. Unfortunately Prov House and Seminary House do not have network wiring installed.

 

Connecting a laptop to the network with a cable has two benefits; the connection speed should be noticeably faster for those who plug-in and those who plug-in are not contending for bandwidth on the WI-FI access points leaving more bandwidth available for those who cannot plug-in.

 

To sign-out a network cable please see Sven in the computer services department during his customer service hours between 2 pm and 4:30 pm weekdays. Cables are available in 15 and 25 foot lengths.
