10th floor network ports
Network Ports Active: We have resolved the network port problem on the 10th floor of the Information Center.
As of November 2, 1999, you can now connect your laptop at every table on the 10th floor of the Information Center. There is at least one active network port per table on the 10th floor.
All ports which are not working have been covered up so it will be easy for you to find a working port.
We will be resolving the problems with the network ports on the 9th floor of the Information Center as soon as possible and will keep you informed of the status.
Please email the Helpdesk if you have any questions
Regular general maintenance of the network is necessary to ensure greater performance, both in terms of speed and the prevention of any serious problems. To achieve these goals, the Center for Law and Computers will periodically take down the network to perform this maintenance. We've scheduled the maintenance on a monthly basis, for only 1.5 hours on days and at times to inconvenience the least amount of users.
Here are the dates that we will be taking the network down. On these days, the network will not be available between 5:30am and 7:00am.
