Reminder: How to access Chicago-Kent's wireless network

Chicago-Kent's wireless infrastructure provides complete connectivity and access to all law school network resources (e.g. email, printing, and home directory) in the following areas of the building:

• Concourse - general open seating area by the Bookstore

• First Floor - Lobby open seating areas, Auditorium, Courtroom, and

Classroom 155

• Second Floor - general open seating area by the Registrar Office, and Cafeteria

• Third Floor - Classroom 305 and 345

• Fifth Floor - Classrooms 570, 580, 581, 583, and Student Lounge

• Library - 6th floor, 7th floor, 8th floor, 9th floor, & 10th floor

Wireless network configuration is automatic for Windows-based laptop computers that are configured to Chicago-Kent’s Windows networking domain. The process happens seamlessly during a normal network login over a wired Ethernet connection.

Chicago-Kent’s wireless network supports the 802.11b and 802.11g wireless networking protocols. 802.11a is also supported in many areas of the building. Most laptops come equipped with built-in wireless adapters that will support the 802.11b or 802.11g protocols. If you do not have a built-in wireless adapter, please contact the CLC Help Desk at x65300 or at helpdesk@kentlaw.edu for a recommendation.

Please contact the CLC at 312-906-5300 or at helpdesk@kentlaw.edu, if you have any questions.

Email and Network Accounts Expired on August 3 for 2009 Graduates

Please be advised that your kentlaw.edu email and network account was terminated on Monday, August 3 @ 11:59pm (the first Monday after the July Bar exam). You will not be able to recover any emails that are currently in your @kentlaw.edu inbox.

If you would like to save your emails, you may download a .pst file of your inbox, following the instructions here. Please note that you must be on campus in order to download your .pst file, as you need access to the Chicago-Kent server for the download. Moreover, please be sure to have a flash drive or recordable CD on which to save your emails, as the files are generally too large to send by email. It is your responsibility to make a backup of your emails to a .pst file. If you have questions, please contact the Center for Law and Computers at pchelp@kentlaw.edu or (312) 906-5300, but note they cannot complete this process for you.

As a Chicago-Kent graduate, the Alumni Association is pleased to offer an e-mail forwarding service using an @alumni.kentlaw.edu email address. This service is available through the Alumni Online Community at www.alumni.kentlaw.edu and allows you to choose a username@alumni.kentlaw.edu address that will be forwarded to your specified personal email account (e.g. gmail, yahoo, or work e-mail, etc).  Your username can be your current kentlaw.edu username or you can create a new one. The advantage of the e-mail forwarding is that once you give your forwarding address to friends and colleagues, you’ll no longer have to notify everyone in your address book of a new or discontinued e-mail address; you can simply update the email account to which the email forwarding address sends to by logging into the Alumni Online Community. Please note that any emails sent to your current @kentlaw.edu address DO NOT automatically get sent to your alumni forwarding address. You must notify your contacts of your new address.

In order to access e-mail forwarding, you must sign up for the Chicago-Kent Alumni Online Community, which, in addition to email forwarding, allows you to update your alumni information, search the alumni directory, join groups, network with fellow alumni, and keep up to date with all the news and events at Chicago-Kent. Accounts for May 2009 graduates will be available by mid-July. Click here to sign up now and we will send you your login information when you have access!

For questions or concerns, please contact the Chicago-Kent Alumni Association at alums@kentlaw.edu or 312.906.5240.

CLC Monthly Network Maintenance Schedule

The Center for Law and Computers will conduct regular monthly maintenance windows on the first Tuesday of every month (5a.m. - 7a.m. in the morning) for "Patch and\or Update" management on systems that need to be rebooted.

Remember too that there may be "emergency" times when manufacturers release "critical" update patches that need to be installed immediately. The CLC will make every attempt to send out an announcement in advance when the "critical" updates need to be installed and systems rebooted (however, we cannot always guarantee advance notice since certain patches/updates need to be applied ASAP before a breach is made).

All network services including Internet access, email, web mail, network drives, and network printing will be down during the above scheduled time.

Maintenance will be conducted on the following days:

Tuesday, August 11, 2009

Chicago-Kent's Internet Service Provider (Illinois Century Network) backbone maintenance window is on Fridays from 2:00am - 7:00am. During this maintenance window it is possible that the Downtown Campus building may experience intermittent Internet connectivity.
